I think this is a Brienz bear, carved by master wood craftsmen in the Swiss alpine town of Brienz, renowned for their bear carvings since the 1800s. Approx 12.7cm wide, 6.5cm high. My grandmother bought this when she was at school in Switzerland, around the age of 14, which must have been in the first decade of the 1900s.
