Berlex Bears – Teddy Bear, History, Information

Berlex Toys is a Melbourne company founded by Lex Bertrand that produced bears from the 1930’s to the 1970’s. Common features of Berlex teddy bears include luxuriant mohair, big well shaped body and limbs, triangular stitched noses and vinyl paw pads. Labels have either “Berlex,” in script, with “Melbourne” beneath and “Made in Australia” on the reverse, or simply “Berlex Melbourne” printed in capital letters.

    I have a big Berlex Teddy Bear….known as Big Ted of course. I was born in 1953 so he is probably of that vintage. He is in very good condition but I am about to become a Grandma for the first time so…..can he be dry cleaned? He looks good but I want to make sure that he isn’t harbouring any nasties. Any tips?
