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. 

Stanley Tong was a Soldier during WW1. This little bear is named after him.

He is made from a lovely plum coloured mohair that has been plucked, stained, painted, waxed  and has faux stitches for a "well loved "look. He is just over 31/2" tall when standing and has one black glass eye and one clear glass eye with a black pupil. He has a sparsely stitched nose and is fully cotter pin jointed.

Stanley is stuffed with kapok, used in the making of early bears and has steel shot in his body for extra weight. He wears a red, white and blue sash tied with a rusty safety pin with a bronze peace sign attached.

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