[FACTOID: This was thought to be a rare Kermode Bear, also known as a Spirit Bear. However it is a grizzly bear. Their fur is grizzled, that is, lighter at the ends than at the roots. Yeah, Grizzly all day. Rounded ears, dish shaped face, shoulder hump. They can certainly be hard to distinguish sometimes]. }}PARTICULARLY BEAUTIFUL TYPE BEAR.
So sue me, I love antique bears. Not bears in fru-fru outfits, but old bears with lots of personality. Apparently Elspeth Raisbeck feels the same way. Her teddy bear board is called Beary Lovely. http://www.pinterest.com/elspethw/beary-lovely/ This pin: Vintage Steiff
