Rare Strunz Bear c1904

Rare Strunz Bear c1904
This adorable, extremely rare Willhelm Struz teddy bear dates to around 1904 and comes complete with his original gutta percha nose. Both Steiff and Strunz used this style of nose for a very short period during their experimental stages of creating bears. This wonderful teddy is a very important historical part of the teddy bear story. He has the sweetest face with original pads (repair to one paw pad and small hole to the other), five claws on each pad and his original under nose and mouth stitching. He retains around 70% of his mohair and is filled with wood wool/kapok. There is a non-working internal squeaker and he measures just 9" tall
