Deans Rag Book Company - Bears
Deans produced their first catalogued teddy bears in their Elephant and Castle factory in 1915, and started producing a series of kapok-stuffed, mohair plush toys called Bendy Bears in the early 1920’s. Each of these "Bendy Bears" had an internal metal framework which allowed them to be manipulated. Their plush bears were not introduced until after WW1. By 1931, Deans tended to use artificial silk plush - there was no mohair in the 1935 range. However, gold, blue and pink mohair plush was reintroduced in 1936.
