handmade by artist Wendy Meagher
NEW JUMBO SIZE === Aprrox. 14" tall - Antique Classic Style tattered & well loved old mustard gold color teddy bear with clown romper & ruff collar handmade from vintage textiles & vintage bell
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 mustard long hair mohair. He has a long classic aged snout with tiny ears. 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 a handmade slouchy clown romper heavily aged with pompoms, handstamped "B", vintage aged ribbons around his neck, ruff collar from vintage textiles and finally a vintage bell around his neck.
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.
