Odd English Teddy Bear

Purchased at an antique show this past weekend was one of the oddest teddy bears I've ever found, with definitely the biggest ears I've ever seen. He measures about 16 inches tall, and I believe he is British, circa the 1930s. His face, body, and limbs are similar to bears made around that time by Peacock, but I've never seen any with ears quite like these. He almost looks like a cross between a teddy bear and an elephant! But he's cute and I love him.

  1. Thanks for posting 'Big eared Bear'. Now I can visit him any time I'm missing him.

  2. He certainly shouldn't be hard of hearing with those ears, in spite of his advanced age ;)

  3. He reminds me of the "Cheeky" bears by Merrythought! Very cute!
