I would like some help in identifying the maker of my slightly smokey-coloured polar bear. It's quite a distinguished bear, with its long and pointy muzzle and pretty ears. It is a rather large and heavy piece, 11cm high and 15cm long, and very well made. The base is chamfered.
I think I can see initials (unfortunately, written quite crudely) on the base: LF or maybe LP. I don't know if it has anything to do with the maker, or if the previous owner was being possessive of his belongings.
I appreciate all help and comments. Thank you.
