NEW JUMBO SIZE === Aprrox. 15" tall - Antique Classic Style tattered & well loved old brown teddy bear with antique leather collar & paper tag with antique photo on one side and early handwritten name "BERNIE MILLER" on the other side
If you like antique toys then you won't be disappointed in this piece! He looks and feels like an antique toy ....so wonderful to hold in your hands. He is wonderfully distressed to look like he came out of an old trunk in the attic but he is newly made by me and is my original copyright design & pattern.
This purchase is for the bear only!
He is made of hand dyed heavily aged well worn brown long hair mohair. He has a long classic aged snout with tiny ears one ear has red textile. He has german glass eyes then shaded for depth. He has a skip-stitched nose & pouty mouth, color waxed & aged. He has heavily aged paw pads with claws. He has 'holes" in his paw pads with red textiles underneath & lots of missing fur to make him look well loved and old..
He wears an antique heavy leather collar with awesome patina an a paper tag with antique child photo on one side and the other side has an early handwritten name BERNIE MILLER......he once belonged to a little boy named Bernie ;)
He is loosely stuffed with wood wool, gravel granulars and sand, for weight and texture. He is 5-way hardware jointed.
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.
