Rare & early Uncle Remus teddy bear
January 29, 2019
Rare & early Uncle Remus teddy bear. This hunky boy measures just shy of 17 and is quite the beefcake! He has his original deep set reverse painted glass eyes. His extremely long curved arms move freely and are thick and chunky. Original felt pads on all paws. Hand pads have beautifully done darning and one small area at the foot pad seam has this lovely darning as well. Five claws on feet and some have popped on hands. All joints move freely and I see no repairs at all. He wears a gorgeous silk handmade collar. He has a fabulous profile and a look like no other with a very nice covering of mohair. Uncle Remus bears were only made for two years, 1906 and 1907. Joel Chandler Harris, the author of the Uncle Remus stories, died in 1908. Following his death, these bears were no longer marketed. You can find some info about Uncle Remus bears on page 31 of The Teddy Bear Treasury volume 2 by Ken Yenke. The item “Rare & early Uncle Remus teddy bear” is in sale since Sunday, January 27, 2019.
