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 Monkey Hand Puppet from the early days of the company. Similar to other creations of the 1950s, this puppet was finely handcrafted in Austria. Its face, with unusual open mouth, gives this character a very unique expression. The eyes are glass and the body is made from mohair with a felt face mask and hands. Its head is stuffed with excelsior (wood wool) and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. This puppet has been well loved and shows plush and felt wear with holes, thinning and stains. Little Monkey can't wait to be loved again and join your vintage toy collection!
