A sweet little Austrian Berg teddy c.1950s, with tiny red metal heart chest tag. All original, Bettie is 20 cms (8″) tall, and has a delightful working squeaker. She’s stuffed with woodwool, and fully-jointed. Her felt pads show very minor surface wear.
Bettie’s eyes are made of amber glass eyes, and her nose and mouth are hand-embroidered in black thread. In beautiful condition, having kept all of her snowy white mohair, Bettie is a really cute character.
Wearing her very old knitted bonnet and matching dress, which has a lovely lace petticoat attached, Bettie also carries her homemade, heart-shaped felt bag.
I wear my heart on my chest – not my arm! Engraved on the back it says ‘Berg Tierre mit Herz’ which means ‘animals with heart’. I very much hope I endear myself to your own heart!
