Bear For Adoption

About the bears

All my bears are loosely and fully jointed.  Each one is jointed, filled with polyester, heavily weighted with steel shot and comes with traditional hand made glass eyes and a stitched nose that has then been waxed.  They have cotton paws that are carefully and sympathetically aged to give them an authentic aged look.  Each bear comes with a sewn in tag and swing tag with all his important details.  Your bear will be packaged carefully in tissue and placed in a box before being sent tracked and signed, add

For postage and packaging charges, please see scroll to the bottom of this page.

All bears have now founds home, but if you want to be informed when new bears become avalable, please use the 'Contact Me' form and I will add you to my mailing list

This is Ruby!  Again the largest bear I make.  A very special bear indeed as her mohair is antique an over 100 years old.  It was very kindly gifted to me by a freind. The antique lace used for her dress was also gifted to me by another very kind freind!  She comes with her silk hat, which has an overlay of the antique lace used in the dress and to complete her look she comes with the most fabulous silver plated Victorian chain mesh sovereign purse, with two small cabachons in the clasp.  Inside her purse she has a little surprise!
