Gorgeous Boodles, early white mohair Steiff bear c.1908, is stuffed with woodwool. He has original boot button eyes, and a tan-stitched nose and mouth, plus matching claws.
One of his footpads is an old replacement, very nicely done, while his other pads are in good condition, with just a sewn repair across the tip of his right paw, and also along the side of one foot. His other footpad has two tiny holes.
Also, there’s a small darn to the top of one arm, hidden by his fur, otherwise he’s in great shape. Boodles has retained virtually all of his fur and his joints work fine. With his cute humped back, and the most adorable expression, he’s the kind of bear that will steal your heart.
