Approx. 9" tall -cabinet size - Antique Classic Style tattered & well loved old Black teddy bear with vintage aged ruff, bow & vintage toy wood bead 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 black color mohairs. He has a long classic aged snout with tiny ears. He has german glass eye & one antique boot button eye. He has a skip-stitched nose & pouty mouth, color waxed & aged. He has aged paw pads with claws & extremely aged with lots of "hole" an textiles peeking through. He has lots of missing fur to make him look well loved and old
He wears a simple vintage aged ruff collar with aged bow & and vintage wood childs toy bead charm.... a classic old distressed teddy bear
He is very 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.
