Just out of a local smoke free house is this very rare early Bing German mechanical Teddy Bear. The cinnamon colored mohair bear is on metal wheels and when the ball is wound the bear seems to be pushing or chasing the ball around.
It measures about 8 inches tall, about 7 inches long, and about 4 inches wide. The bear retains its original metal tag in its ear. It is in good condition for its age, ca1913. It has some wear and loss to the mohair, there is some wear and paint loss to the ball, and the ball has a few dents.The action still works well and is a delight to watch. This is one of the scarcest examples made by Bing and could be the center of any collection.
Although working well now we would suggest because of its age it is not overly wound and we cannot guarantee its future performance or function due to its age. See photos as they are part of the description. Would make a nice addition to any collection and is guaranteed as described.
