Soldier Bear Private JONES Albert Sold
Click image to enlarge
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.
Private Albert Jones was a soldier duing WW1. His details are listed below.
This lttle bear is made from mohair that I have aged to give a "Well Loved" look. He has blue glass eyes , one lighter than the other, a stitched, waxed nose and is fully cotter pin jointed. He is stuffed with Kapok, a natural product from the Kapok tree and has steel shavings in his body for added weight. He is fully cotter pin jointed.
Albert wears a bronze coloured 'Hope' charm on a red, white and blue ribbon held together with a rusty old safety pin.
