PLEASE READ THIS DESCRIPTION IN FULL, before emailing me questions. Thank you.
You will receive a RETIRED & VERY RARE ebearneezer's money bag collectible plush bear. This belonged to my mom, so I'll be selling this item for her. I'll do my very best to describe the item, however, I only know what I see and what my mom remembers at time of purchase.
To begin with, this is a very rare and retired bear that represents SCROOGE from a christmas carol. My mom purchased this item from a speciality collectible store back in the 1980s. I don't know specific date other than the 80s. There is two hanging retail tags. One retail tag went for $162.95. The other tag says the following: Mate's Originals, A california limited partnership, the heart of quality, handcrafted in america. Thats all thats on the tags.
My mom had this sitting on a shelf. So, it was somewhat dirty/dusty. The beige gown and hat is showing dark marks. The hat is showing dirtiness, and I tried to take a picture with my camera, but my camera is not very good. But, please note there dark spots on the front and back portions of hat area. The inside night shirt is alittle dirty, mainly its the portions that stuck out of the house coat. The house coat is a darker color, so its difficult to see any dirt marks(if any), but there is some discoloration on the house coat mainly along the arms area and slightly on the back side.
Bear is carrying a wooden goldish candle holder and a plush money bag that says, 'ebearneezer's money bag'. I only measure the main body of the bear from head to toe. Bear measures about 17"-18"(without measuring hat) inches in overall size. If I measure the bear with hat it would be an additional 4"-5" inches of size. All original clothing and accessories, nothing else included. No certificate of authenticity and no box. I will include the original doll stand. The bear looks very well made and the main body materials on the bear is furry brown. There is no stitching that is coming out, no rips, no tears. Just dirtiness on certain portions since it was sitting on a shelf without protection for a very long time.
**NOTE TO BUYER:***Also, the rubber band on this hat(shown in picture) will be kept on for shipping. You can take off rubber band once delivered. I forgot to take it off before taking a picture of the item. This way it keeps the hat from not moving too much while packaged safely in box. Will also package with EXTREME CAUTION. The buyer will need to sign for the item at time of delivery, tracking will be provided.
Other than what I described above, I don't know much more....or how else I could explain this item. I'm assuming if you are looking for this item or even if you are looking at this bear then you probably know more than me. I honestly described the item to the best of my knowledge and capabilities. If you have any questions, I'll will do my absolute best to answer. My only other suggestion is to try and search the internet for furthur research.
