The name that immediately comes to mind when thinking of polar bears is the Russian Lomonosov pottery. They marked their work though. With no mark, one really has to go by the quality of the modelling. With Polar bears that is always quite diddicult.

Unfortunately Lomonosov marks are printed, and can rub off.

However, Just about everyone who made animal figures made polar bears.
You would have to go by the stance, drooping head, right front leg outstretched etc.
on an image search.
Nearest is Bing & Grondahl, but theirs are more detailed, with some colouring.

Thank you. I have trawled through images before without luck but I will try Bing & Grondahl and Lomonosov again.

I don't think bing & Grohdahl figurines have holes on the bottom. 
and the lomonosov figurines I've seen have more regular holes.

I did have another look but nicotine found it yet. It’s a nice figurine but so much hangs on a name!

I don't suppose it could be Royal Dux, could it?

I did check yesterday as the ID on my elephant was Royal Dux but I couldn’t see it. Hopefully it won’t stay unidentified for ever.

maybe Japanese; i hava a few 1960s-1970s Japanese figurines with the same similar bottom as yours. But it could also be lomanosov after all, one without a mark. and the holes seem to have been smashed with a object
