Delilah is sold
Here we have the delightful Delilah. This is one of the little girl Soldier Bears and she is made from pale pink mohair that I have plucked, cut, shaded and waxed for a well loved look. She has blue glass eyes and a sparsely stitched and waxed nose. She is fully cotterpin jointed and filled with kapok used in the making of early bears and has added steel shot in her body for extra weight. She is approximately 31/2" tall and wears a silver coloured Hope charm around her neck
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. The little bears on this page are my version of these bears Today they are much sought after and fetch many hundreds of pounds.
