Company history and description of the company Hecla, USA

Hecla was an American manufacturer that made bears from the early 1900?s. Hecla bears had voice boxes in direct competition to Steiff. Hecla teddy bears were made with imported German mohair and were assembled by German toymakers making it very difficult to tell the difference between Hecla bears and those made by Steiff.
Some typical features of Hecla bears include ears that are set wide apart, rust colored noses and claw stitching, closely set eyes made of clear glass with painted backs. They also have the hump on the bear?s back, large round feet and long limbs and arms set very high on the body.
