Teddy Bear Pin - Antique Gold

sku: S883

The Teddy Bear is an enduring, traditional form of a stuffed animal, often serving the purpose of comforting children. The name Teddy Bear comes from November 1902 American President Theodore Roosevelt's hunting trip to Mississippi, to which he was invited by Mississippi Governor Andrew H. Longino. Roosevelt's attendants, led by Holt Collier, cornered, clubbed, and tied to a willow tree an American Black Bear after a long exhausting chase with hounds. They called Roosevelt to the site and suggested he shoot it. He refused to shoot the bear himself, deeming this unsportsmanlike, but instructed that the bear be killed to put it out of its misery, and it became the topic of a political cartoon by Clifford Berryman in The Washington Post on November 16, 1902.

This pin is a 3 dimensional design that is antique gold plated, includes a clutch back, and is individually poly bagged.
