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 my version of  one of these bears

Pumphrey is approx 3 &  1/2 inches when standing and is made from red mohair that I have plucked and aged for a "well loved" look. He has a vintage red button for one eye and the other is a black glass eye. He has a sparsely  stitched nose and is fully cotter pin jointed. Phumphrey is filled with kapok, used in the making of early bears and has steel shot in his body for added weight. He wears a red,white and blue sash tied together with a rusty old safety pin and rusty bell. He comes with his  own handmade military bag. The peace medal is not included in this sale .
