=== Approx. 9" tall - Antique Vintage Style old gold grizzly teddy bear with slouchy vintage textile ruff collar, antique mustard boot button & ribbon bow
I am working on new designs....a more sophisticated-realistic yet antique toy like designs..... this is a new larger size grizzly bear. He is One of a kind and still developing the design.
This purchase is for the bear only!
He is made of hand dyed heavily distressed old gold mohairs. He has a long classic aged snout with tiny ears. He has german glass eyes then shaded for depth, with a more defined grizzly style forehead. He has a skip-stitched nose & pouty mouth, color waxed & aged. He has heavily aged paw pads with "holes" in each of his pads...for an old antique appearance
He wears a worn slouchy textile ruff collar, ribbon bow & mustard boot button in great old toy colors!
He is firmly stuffed with wood wool, gravel granulars and sand, for weight and texture. He is 4-way hardware jointed with wire armature neck which can be gently posed.
He will come with my signed hang tag so you know that you are getting an Original Whimsical Whendi's Bear and not an imitation!
As with all my work, including clothing & accessories, it is for the Adult Collector only and not intended for children.
He is shown standing but cannot stand alone without help.
All Sales are Final. If you have any questions please contact me.
