    I found in a shoe box at local ESTATE SALE about 10 years ago. I recently found it in garage. I IMAGE Google but it does not come up.
    I think it's a steif but has no button. One year stands up.
    It MEASURES 10.5 inches standing up. All limbs rotate INCLUDING head. However the legs only turn about 3 times before getting tight.. the mouth is slightly dented IN LIKE it had something BEFORE., I dont know how to tell if its white or blonde.
    The arms and legs appear to be longer for its body size..
    Please help identify.

    Could be home sewer.

    Is the nose made of yarn?

    Pads look new(er)..........

    Photo does not show close up.......so can't tell how applied to body.

    Could be wool pads. The stitching looks hand sewn.

    He's a nice bear.

    The arms might look long to you, but view Steiff bears.............Your local library would probably have a book or two with good photos.

    The nose is not a plastic parts nose, but made of yarn?

    When the arms and legs move, they are referred to as jointed.
