I am very excited about this little bear as I have wanted to make a perfume bear for some time now but it has taken me a while to work out how to do it. The first ones I saw were vintage 1930s bears but I never see any around now.
This little one is approximately 31/4 inches (8.5cm) tall when standing and made from pale gold mohair. His (or hers) arms and legs are cotterpin jointed and his head comes off to reveal a glass vial with a cork stopper for which perfume can be added. The outside of the bottle is padded out with kapok.The top of the bottle sits within his head and is not a tight fit so probably would not be suitable for carrying about in your handbag. More for the dressing table and for decoration.
He has black glass eyes and a worn looking embroidered, waxed nose. He has shading to his nose, ears and feet.
The bear comes wearing a bronze effect perfume bottle aroud his neck.
