FABULOUS OLD BEAR
Here we have a
lovely old Bear, he has a stunning face with such a
serious expression. I find bears which have a
known history particuarly interesting, and it`s nice to
be able to take that history forward with a bear.
This lovely Bear belonged to a lady called Joyce who was
born in 1926. The original photograph which comes
with Joyce`s bear shows Joyce on her bicycle with her
lovely bear riding along on the top of the front wheel!
He has been so well looked after, and has beautifully
clean and shiny pale gold mohair. His stuffing has
settled in the top of his chest over the years, so his
head drops a bit onto his chest which gives him such a
cute look. The stuffing in the tops of his limbs
has also settled out, and this can be seen in the
photographs I have taken. He has very little
mohair loss, still having a great mohair coverage.
