Very RARE 1940s Deans Rag Book Ming Walking Panda Old Antique Teddy Bear. He's a really rare Panda made by Deans Ragbook around 1949 to early 1950's. He's stuffed with woodwool and kapok with heavy weighted feet. He retains his original glass eyes, original facial stitching, original pads (in great condition considering all the walking he's done) and original claw stitching. Ming measures around 16inches long and wears his original collar which has a replacement lead chain attached to it.
As mentioned Ming is known as a walking panda, this is because his feet are heavily weighted.. So it means that by using his lead and collar you can take him for a walk, and on the right surface you can kind of see him waddling! I can only imagine this has left many children with happy memories of their walks with Ming.
He does like a walk around the garden, though is just as happy down the hallway too. He's very keen to find new places to roam with a happy owner..
Do you have a space for Ming to trot into? Any questions please message me :. I have lots of other bears etc for sale and many more to still list. Check out my other items. If you have any questions, or would like more information, photos or videos (as photos never do justice).
