This enchanting bear with movement has great appeal. Originally crafted in Russia with a clockwork mechanism and a luxurious coat, this toy of yesteryear, would have been a much regarded and cherished item, that not all, if many could afford.
The bear was created using a press moulded, cardboard body, perfect for housing his mechanical cogs and covered in a gloriously tactile and smooth, glossy chestnut brown artificial silk plush, with white enhanced, glossy black eyes, for expression and endearment, above a textured, black faux leather for his nose, whilst his open mouthed expression gives the illusion of the white milk going into his red mouth, through a simple painting technique. Between his paws rests a milk bottle with an orange teat.
Once activate he lifts his arms holding the bottle up and down, whilst opening and closing his mouth.
Please enjoy the short video below and marvel at his antics.
He comes with a modern-day, reproduction turn key, which activates his internal clockwork mechanism. This comes with no guarantee, given his age.
This charming character would make a fabulous and amusing family heirloom, or would be a wonderful addition for any collector.
