Pedigree Toys was founded in 1937, in Exeter, England. They began producing teddy bears immediately, but it’s those from the 1950’s and 60’s that we tend to find more of. Those with a ‘made in England’ label are before 1955, as after, they were produced in Northern Ireland.
This glorious vintage Pedigree bear is 50 cm / 20″ in size and four-way jointed. He has been sewn from a high-quality golden hued plush, with chocolate paws for his almost dainty paws, in comparison to the size of his head. He has large half-saucer shaped ears, with size-able two-tone eyes, plus a detailed moulded nose at the end of his pointy snout. To finish, a classic red ribbon tied into a bow.
The years have been kind and he is in great condition. Although he no longer has his swing tag, his sewn in tag confirms his authenticity as a Pedigree Bear.
