£ 69.00

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.
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 one is for a special husband fighting now in the Ukraine and I am just waiting for his ribbon to arrive before I finish his details. He is the bear on the right of the photo of 2 bears.
