Teddy Bear

The cuddly bear became the rage after Teddy Roosevelt's famous encounter with a bear cub. This motif was adopted by the Caille Brothers Co. for a new vending machine introduced around 1909. For a penny, Teddy makes a complete somersault as the machine delivers a stick of gum. One winding of e the clockwork motor is sufficient for 130 lively performances. The flora cast-iron front frames the gum and a charming lithographed scene of storybook animals.
