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. This little bear is one of my versions of them and is named after Private Ralph Cook who was a soldier in WW1.

Ralph is now Sold

Ralph is made from light brown mohair which I have plucked, shaded and waxed for a "well loved" feel. I have also added faux stitches and given him odd sized brown glass eyes and a sparsely stitched nose.

He is approximately 31/2" tall  and fully cotter pin jointed. His head and limbs are stuffed with kapok, used in the making of early bears, and e has steel shot in his body for a nice weight.

Ralph comes wearing a bronze coloured peace charm around his neck.

The water bottle is NOT included but just used as a prop.
