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.

 

Myrtle is now sold

Myrtle is  approximately  31/2" tall and made from hand dyed pink  mohair. She is fully cotter pin jointed  and has been distressed to make her look well loved. She has blue glass eyes in different shades and sizes and a  sparsely stitched nose . She  has been plucked, shaded, waxed and had faux stitching to her.

 

Myrtle is filled with kapok, used in the making of early bears and has steel shot in her body for added weight. She wears a  'Hope' charm around her neck.
