Whenever I get stuck for inspiration I look through the antique bears on line and Jones is my version of one of these. One of my current favourites he is just over 31/2" (9cm) and made from an old gold sparse mohair which I have aged to give him a "well loved" look. He is fully cotterpin jointed ans filled with kapok, used in the making of early bears, and has steel shot in his body for extra weight. He has brown glass eyes and a nose that looks like it is falling apart.
Jones comes with a rusty old bell around is neck
