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.
