    Hi, I would love it if somebody could identify this bear.

    It is 10 inches long. Feels like it's stuffed with straw. Fully jointed. There is a hole in the back of one of its ears. Unsure if it's a Steiff or something else. IMG_7885.jpg IMG_7887.jpg IMG_7886 (1).jpg IMG_7888 (1).jpg

    Thank you so much in advance.

    The nose is SO dark, I couldn't see if it's one of theirs (Steiff) or not,
    but 'he/she' sure is adorable!!! But this person should know....she deals in selling the vintage ones!!!

    Website is: https://www.mysteifflife.com/ which you can check out, as well as email and phone below! Good luck and WELCOME to ANTIQUERS! I sold the last of my collection with her.....she's been doing it for YEARS!!

    What makes you so sure?
    Seems after all this time she's in a bit of disarray, as ladies in their dotage sometimes are. Guys seldom make it that long...just sayin'...

    Ye Gods an' little fishhooks! I'll never call for PC, in any context...sorry. The look on her face reminds me of an old GF, after I'd spoken some sexist bs. But that was long ago...I'm not like that anymore, at all...honestly, Ladies!

    Thank you so much. I actually reached out a while back and didn't hear anything, but maybe I will try again. Maybe inundated with emails. Thanks again for your help.

    Not in the front? The Steiff button is always on the front of the ear.

    I may not be seeing it right, but it doesn't seem to have a hump. Steiff bears have a small hump just below the neck.

    Thank you so much for the information. You’re right about both. It’s a total mystery.
