Just got this little antique teddy doll - about 10 inches tall and likely from the early 1900's. Mohair body with excelsior stuffing and a bisque doll head. It has a squeaker in the body that works and the eyes sleep. The old silk ribbons have mostly frayed away, but otherwise it is in very nice shape. Needless to say I am thrilled to pieces with her - and she fits into both my bear and doll collections!
She's gorgeous, Edie! I love her! Jessie, a teddy doll has a mohair bear body that at the top where the teddy bear head would be is a hood like a jacket and tucked in to the hood is a precious little bisque dolly's face - this one is an antique doll, with a beautifully painted face and glass eyes. The top of the hood has a gorgeous silk bow that has frayed with age but you can imagine what it was like when it was new - precious!
