The bird is very well made and it has a sample label around one leg with 727 written in pencil on it. The ‘7s’ are written in the continental style with a horizontal line half way up. Although there is no other identification on it, it could well be made by Schuco in Germany.

The word JAPAN is just visible on the mouse’s collar. The design is an imitation of a German Schuco mechanical mouse. Note that the Davenport advertisement refers to Mickey Mouse, presumably a good selling point.

The well dressed tinplate bear has a collar with the word ‘Foreign’ on it. It is either a bear made by Schuco from Germany, or a very good imitation.
