German Clown Teddy
A very rare and much loved teddy bear is seeking a new home!
Made by the company German company Hermann Eckstein & Co, circa 1925, the bear is typical of its kind but has coloured fur and is known as a ‘German Clown teddy’. Now very rare and sought after by collectors, the bear was originally presented to Master John Kiernan, the youngest patient at the Warrington Infirmary in 1928, by Mayoress (Frank) Stringer. A newspaper cutting with a photograph showing the bear being presented is being sold with Teddy, who has passed through four generations of the same family before being sold.
