   So unusual and very rare Pappe Moritz harlequin clown teddy bear made in Germany around 1920s. A fun but serious expression to his sweet little face, he has faceted glass button eyes which are replacements for his big opalescent eyes. His floss looks original to me. 

     Vibrant colored mohair is red, green & gold. He doesn’t have much fading to him but his fur is worn. He’s missing his right arm and his left ear. His jointed arm turns. His head is sewn down, doesn't turn, likely made that way without joint. I feel no disc in either side. There is mohair loss, a small hole on the front body. I believe he once had a Swiss bellows music box inside but it has been removed. This would account for his slouching & floppy appearance as usually the music boxes are heavy and will help keep teddy upright. His stuffing feels like horsehair and excelsior. His feet were flat and the soles are heavy felt which is still in very good condition.

    A Quirky Old Ted, truly a very rare bear in any condition, a few companies made their own style of a harlequin clown teddy with tri color mohair and pompoms down the front. He measures approximately 13" tall to top of head when standing.
