Harry is now Sold

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 these bears. 

This is Harry Adams who is named after Private Harry Adams from the 1st Battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment.

Harry is  approximately 31/2 inches tall and made from scruffy  two tone mohair on a beige backing and has blue glass eyes ,one larger than the other,and a sparsely stitched nose. He is fully cotterpin jointed and has steel shot in his body for added weight. His head and limbs are firmly stuffed with kapok, used in the making of early bears.

 

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

 

If you would like to reserve any of the Little Scruffs on my site for up to 5 weeks a £10 deposit will secure.

 

If you are in the UK and would prefer to have this bear sent by the lower price of signed for or by courier please let me know and I will adjust the postage
