Old Bears & Friends






Here we have such a lovely Merrythought Bear, called Rosie - well she had to be, didn`t she?  Just look at her beautiful dress... profusely embroidered with flowers. Her colour is absolutely stunning.   Her colour is so intense   -almost a cinnamon.  Merrythought certainly knew how to produce a very appealing bear both in her face and softness.  Oh so cuddly.  Kapok filled.  Large cupped ears and arms turned up at the end  Her original pads do not have any holes, but her hand pads in particular do have some age staining.  Some but not all of her claws remain.  She has her Merrythought label on her left foot.  Amazingly her rich colour has not faded at all.  She has a tiny mend to the rear of her right arm Her coverage is also super with a couple of areas of baldness to her back and a tiny spot to the middle of her tum and to the upper left of her chest.  As she is so clean, these areas are not very noticeable at all.

She is just a stunner and would date from the 1930s/40s I would estimate.  She measures about 19 or 20 inches if measured to the top of her ears.  She has a really expressive face and  is waiting for her new home - and I know you will love her dearly when you see her.  Layaway available.  A gorgeous bear for the money!
