Farnell & Photo c1910

Farnell & Photo c1910
It is known that Farnell were the first manufacturer of teddy bears in the UK, possibly as early as 1906, and by 1910 Harrods were offering Farnell bears in their catalogue. This delightful small bear was likely made by Farnell around 1908 and he comes with an original photograph of himself with the young owner taken in August 1910. The photo has a small tear but the bear is clearly shown. He is in good condition and totally original with felt pads and boot button eyes. He is five way jointed, filled with wood wool and has a non-working internal squeaker. The stuffing has shifted on his left wrist where he was lovingly held whilst carried around. Please enquire for more details on this sweet teddy who measures a small size of 9.5" tall
