During World War One many British Soldiers used to be given a little bear by their sweethearts and loved ones. These bears had eyes that were high up on their heads which peeped out of the soldiers' top pockets. I have been making my own replicas for a few years now and just love creating them.
The 3 bears in this photo are being listed seperately and this listing is for Woodbine on the left of the photo who is approximately 31/2" tall
Made from a spikey mohair which I have plucked, shaded, waxed and added faux stitching to, Woodbine has odd brown glass eyes and a sparsely stitched and waxed nose. He is fully cotter pin jointed and filled with kapok, used in the making of early bears and has added steel shot in his body for a nice weight. he wears a tatty red, white and blue sash tied together with a rusty old pin with a peace charm attached
These bears go by Royal Mail Special delivery in the UK. If you would prefer me to send him by Recorded delivery please email me first.
