Miss Amelia Soldier Bears

£ 65.00

 

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. There were no pink Soldier Bears at that time  but Little Scruffs think there should have been!

Miss Amelia is made from soft pink mohair which I have plucked and added pale grey shading to for a "well loved" look. I have also added faux stitching and a chain stitched heart on her front.

Miss Amelia is fully cotterpin jointed and her body is filled with steel shot for added weight. Her head and limbs are firmly stuffed with kapok, used in the making of early bears. She wears a silver coloured "hope" charm around her neck on  a piece of old lace.

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

 

If you are in the UK and would prefer to have this bear sent by the lower price of signed for or by courier please let me know and I will adjust the postage

 

Discounted postal costs for ALL countries outside the UK can be found on my Terms page along with questions on reserving a bear
