Rare |  1910/20’s Somersaulting / Tumbling Jester Old Antique Teddy Bear 

This is a very rare, very cute, somersaulting/tumbling teddy bear, dressed in a Jesters outfit – likely original due to age and fit.
I believe he is probably Germany, but I’m unsure of the maker. He mostly likely dates to the 1910/20s.

He is now almost bald, with just a few flecks of mohair here and there.

He has boot button eyes which appear original, and he measures around 8 inches.

His legs are pin-jointed, and his neck is un-jointed. His body and arms are formed around a wind-up mechanical mechanism which makes his appear to tumble.

 

He is in working condition. When his arms are wound-up and released, they slowly unwind and he performs his trick – (sometimes he needs a little help to get all the way over)

 

 

Because he’s small, he has no pads on his hands or feet.

 

 

 

Fascinating century old bear!
