As I posted earlier this week, I was thrilled to have won 4 awards at the Woburn Abbey Teddy Bear Festival.  Just looking at the pictures, I wish I could have been there. I have duplicated the pieces as closely as possible and thought I would offer these for sale. Thanks for peeking.  If you have any questions,  please email me by clicking this link.

1.   SELWYN  SOMERSBY is lovingly hand sewn from hand dyed, black, German mohair.  He stands 3 1/4 inches tall, is fully disc jointed, has amber German glass eyes, a waxed nose and is firmly stuffed with excelsior.  Selwyn has also been gently weighted with some steel shot, has aged, wool felt paw pads and his fur has been aged with tiny bits of fur missing, for a classic vintage look.  He wears a sailor collar, made from vintage wool, trimmed with the tiniest black silk ribbon.  It has been aged and fastens by the ribbon in the front.  Selwyn also wears a tiny aged, paper sailor hat.  Both the hat and collar are removable.   

Selwyn comes with his own blue and white china tea set, as pictured here, proving boy teddies love their tea as much as any bear.  The tea set is very tiny, but is the perfect size for a wee bear.  Postage is $20.00 by UPS to most places in North America and by Small Packet Airmail to Europe. Prices are in U.S. dollars.

2.  JASPER THE JUGGLER is a larger bear, at 7 inches tall (8 1/3 with hat) and is hand sewn from beige German Shulte with a dark backing, that has been aged for vintage appeal.    He is fully disc jointed, stuffed with excelsior and weighted gently with steel shot for an antique feel.  Jasper's eyes are black German glass and his sparse nose is waxed.  He has a few bald spots, along with tiny holes in his aged, ultra suede paw pads, where his excelsior shows through.  Jasper has an aged cotton ruffle  (secured with vintage silk ribbon) with a wool felt and matching cotton clown hat,  decorated with tiny pom poms.  He carries a hand made copper juggling apparatus, with three coloured balls.  They are fixed in position. The hat and ruffle have also been aged and everything is removable, if for some reason he tires of being a clown.   I ship UPS to most places within North America.

3.  BABY BUNNY IS 4 1/2 inches tall and lovelingly hand stitched from German Shulte mohair that has been hand painted with many layers of fabric paint.  Bunny has a jointed neck, amber glass eyes and excelsior stuffing, gently weighted with steel shot.  He has folded felt ears,  nylon whiskers, and wears a white organza bow around his neck, decorated with vintage flowers.

4.  MINIATURE EASTER BUNNY is a fraction over 3 inches tall and hand sewn from cream, miniature German Shulte mohair.  Bunny is fully disc-jointed, has German amber glass eyes and excelsior and steel shot stuffing.  He has moved felt ears, nylon whiskers and embroidered features.  Bunny wears an organza bow around his neck, a decorated, hand sculpted  easter basket on his back (made from epoxy sculpt and is removable) and tiny shoes (made from wood and organiza ribbon).  He comes with a miniature wooden Easter sign, made by me.  The Easter bunny and sigh fits nicely inside her pretty pink metal easter egg, with vintage graphics.  I ship UPS to most places within North America.
