Adorable BMC c1907

Adorable BMC c1907
This fabulous chap is dressed in his antique shirt and even comes with a vintage BMC pin together with a brass bell. He is in very good, original condition with small overall wear to the apricot mohair and you can see where the label would have been sewn on his foot. Ted retains original glass eyes and much of his nose stitching but has lost most of the mouth stitching. He is fully jointed and filled with wood wool/kapok. A rare and wonderful antique teddy who measures 16" tall


The Bruin Manufacturing Company was a briefly existing firm that established itself in New York City in 1907. After a trial period of stamping their trademark onto the foot, it was decided that a silky woven label with the initials "BMC" was a more permanent form of identification. These cuddly toys were made to a very high standard with good quality mohair and imported voice boxes from Germany. As the firm was only in production for two years, Bruin creations are extremely rare and in great demand.
