=== Aprrox. 9" tall - Antique Classic Style tattered & well loved old gold long hair mohair teddy bear with distressed clown romper, hat & ruff collar with vintage Schoenhut ToY Circus poker chip charm
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 old gold 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 & 'holes" in his paw pads with black textiles underneath..
He wears a handmade clown romper heavily aged with handstamped "TOY", vintage aged ribbon around his neck, ruff collar from vintage textiles, a matching hat (removable) and finally a vintage poker chip charm with antique Schoenhut TOY Circus graphics 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.
