Dare Wright used a big Yes-No Teddy in her Edith the Lonely Doll books as Edith’s friend Mr. Bear and later as his two brothers. Made in the 1930s in Germany by Schuco, YES-NO Teddy Bears have wonderful personality. Teddy is 20” tall from ear-tips to toes and in very excellent condition in lush & thick caramel mohair with big soulful palest-amber glass eyes. Tail & Head movement works perfectly and easily; new interior music-box plays “Jesus Loves Me”.

Mr. Bear’s nose, mouth and claws are floss-embroidered, his muzzle is firm & forthright and he has big rounded ears just at the top/sides of his round head. Original paw-pads are tan wool felt~ (each of three paws has a small felt patch; mohair only has thin areas around edges of back feet). He’s very hard to resist, great at cuddling, and comes from a non-smoking home.

22″ tall to the top of the ears this charming Schuco Teddy bear is looking for a new home. There are 2 places on this foot paw pads that have been fixed at some time in his life. Ususally this happens because the felt is pulled so tight. His fur covered tail makes his head go up and down for the yes and no mechanism also his head swivels left and right. I would say he is in very excellent condition which we will show in the photograph.

This is a very special bear indeed, 17 inch dark golden mohair, almost a brassy color,excellent mohair coverage, at least 90%, original eyes and mouth with some repairs to floss nose stitching, small split above nose, slight fabric glue residue on snout, barely noticeable at all, but want to mention it, small hole at disc of right leg, another small hole to shoulder,no button.

Detail

Peggy’s bear is so called because he comes with a letter of provenance passing the bear down to a girl named Peggy signed by her Mom. It reads “Dear Peggy, This Teddy Bear belonged to Nana’s (Violet Davis) son, it is at least 45 years old to date, 1951, Nana said you were to have it… Love, Mother. The bear itself is so gorgeous, lush mohair in such a rich shade, he has a gentle, pondering look, and with the letter of provenance making him such a treasure! I am very sad to have to sell him and want him to go to a home who will treasure him.

Russ Berrie Quote

Although today’s generation has its own memories and experiences – the teddy bear is and will always remain a favourite source of comfort and security, an enduring symbol of human affection, an expression of our need to connect. How rewarding it is for me to know that what I do each and every day brings so much comfort and happiness to the young and young at heart.

Mr Russ Berrie stated the following in a 2003 interview.

A most adorable expression graces the face of this sweet circa 1950 Steiff CLASSIC TEDDY BEAR is beige mohair with joints at neck, shoulders and hips, plus his original yellow ribbon-bow. Teddy is in very good condition, well-loved yet intact and cuddly.

Brown glass eyes, original dark-brown floss nose & mouth, pert ears and a sweet character make this 6” little guy irresistible! Mohair is a little thin in a few areas – forepaws, center-back and bridge of nose, though he’s been nicely kept through the years and comes from a non-smoking environment.A most adorable expression graces the face of this sweet circa 1950 Steiff CLASSIC TEDDY BEAR is beige mohair with joints at neck, shoulders and hips, plus his original yellow ribbon-bow.
