BERG is an Austrian manufacturer established in the mid 40s. They created lovely stuffed animals and hand puppets with the slogan "Animals with Heart" and a distinctive red heart shaped chest pendant.
Here's an example of a rare Teddy Bear Hand Puppet from the early times of the company. Similar to other creations of the 1950s, this puppet was finely handcrafted in Austria using the best materials. He has a very sweet expression with endearing glass eyes, open felt mouth, felt paws and mohair body. His head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. Teddy Bear puppet has been loved and shows plush wear in some areas. Also note that he no longer carries any IDs. This toy will certainly be a welcome addition to your vintage puppet collection!
