B-738, Grizzly Bear
Height: 5 3/4”
Designer: Maureen Love
as “Bear” S1961-F1961, F1971-F1972
as “Grizzly Bear” F1981 (brown, white or gold)
Mold Book Name: Bear
Notes: In F1981, the Grizzly Bear appeared only on the Freeman-McFarlin order form, offered in white or gold. The Bear was also made in realistic brown at San Marcos, although it never appeared on any HR San Marcos order forms. As a result, the exact season that it was made in the realistic finish is unknown. Going by the Bison, Longhorn, and FM art glaze Bears, it’s a good guess the realistic San Marcos Bear was only made F1981.
