Hiking Bear

Now this bear isn't even Poole, though it continues in an animal theme.  Its a "Black Forest" Swiss carving from the early 20th Century, I think, that I found on eBay last week.  I tend to keep an eye out for these when I'm wondering through antiques fairs looking for Poole Pottery.  I thought this one was particularly nice with its rucksack and walking staff.  I just need to find a match box of the right size for him to carry.
