Now Sold
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.
I started making replicas of these bears many years ago and they are still one of my favourite bears. I name them after real soldiers that fought in this war and I have even had customers take the bears to their namesakes' grave.
This bear is named after Major William Aldworth Aubertin who died in Egypt on 20th February 1919
Soldier Bear William is made from a lovely purple mohair which I have plucked, shaded, waxed and added faux stitches to . He has odd brown eyes, one smaller than the other to look like he has had a repair done. He is fully cotter pin jointed and is stuffed with Kapok, used in the making of many early bears. He has steel discs in his body for added weight. He comes wearing the ribbon of WW1 with a bronze coloured "Peace" charm attached by a rusty old safety pin.
