Both bears are wonderful!  bear_flower The mohair on the white bear looks especially soft and dense.

They are both lovely.  You must be delighted with them.  The brown bear is my favourite.   He is such a happy bruin.

Wow! wonderful bears!  I don't know which one I like better. The bottom one is so unique, I can't read the tag, can you tell me who the maker is?

The green/gold tag reads "Bera Hamburg" or "Vera Hanburg" with no other marks. I've try looking on the net & can't find any info. , perhaps some help?

The brown bear in your first post is a Berg bear from Austria. He is absolutely wonderful! What a great find!

What an unusual bear; I don't think I have ever seen paws like that.  But he has a very endearing expression.  bear_wub
