Private Jim Foster was a Soldier during World War One. This bear is named after him.
This little Soldier Bear is approximately 31/2
inches tall and made from a mohair. He has green eyes in different shades, high up on his head like the original Soldier Bears that peeped out of the Soldier's pocket. He has a stitched nose and comes wearing a red,white and blue sash with a "hope" charm attached to it by a rusty old safety pin.
Jim is fully cotter pin jointed and stuffed with kapok, used in the making of early bears. He has steel shot in his body for added weight. I have plucked his fur, shaded and waxed him to give him the appearance of a "well loved" bear.
