Some Very Old Toys

This doll was bought from an old woman at a tag sale.

She told me it was very old , I'm just not sure how old.

It is filled with sawdust . I know this because if I

move the doll around at all the sawdust comes right

through the cloth.

This Teddy is made with real fur and I think
it's from Germany. I'm not sure what kind of
fur it is . I bought this bear at an estate sale &
the previous owner was a furrier. The bear
also has glass eyes.

I love this Kangaroo & baby . It came from

the same estate sale as the bear . This may also

be from Germany because most of their things

were. I think that it may be an early Steiff

animal that was made before they started

putting the trade mark button in the ear.

That would bring us to early 1900's . This

Kangaroo is made of mohair I think and stuffed

very tightly with straw. The stitching is very

sturdy also & it has glass eyes.

~So if anyone can tell me more about these items

please leave me a comment.~
