I based Fred loosely on an old Steiff bear and I think he maybe looks older than the bear he is with. He is approximately 33/4" tall and a new design from me. He is made from a light golden viscose that I have aged for his well loved look.
Fred has brown glass eyes and an embroidered, waxed nose. He is filled with kapok, used in the making of early bears and I have added steel shot in his body for a nice weight. he is fully cotter pin jointed and comes wearing a rusty old bell around his neck.
