Hi all
I am new to this site and I am looking for help on my bear I have bought.
I have a feeling it is a 1907 bing bear , but it could also be a steiff as its hard to tell the difference.
Please if someone can help that would be great. 1420224531_image.jpg

It's a Steiff Original Teddy, in my opinion. It's hard to know the age range without the ear button, but it looks older (i.e. Before 1960).


For comparison: … 4897.l4275

Yes see we thought it was steiff as it looks very similar but certain things like stitching is different to steiffs and the head being round and the ears on the side of its head?
So,someone said it looks like the bing 1907 type bears? Anyone else any ideas? Steiff or bing  bear_original

Not sure...  I get a hunch he could be an early Merrythought.
Is there evidence of a banner tag across his foot?  (The Bear's own left foot.)  Or a tush tag?
