He Has the most Wonderful expressive looking face and a rather portly bear figure just like father Christmas !
Berry Loves Christmas and helping to make it a Merry old one for everybody and because he enjoys it so much he has always loved being Father Christmas for all the little bears in the nursery .
Berry is a German bear and dates to C1930/40.
This wonderful looking bear is a five-way jointed old bear and all his joints move and turn well for him.
He measures a grand 25" from head to paw and is stuffed very firmly with wood wool throughout making him rather a heavy old bear!
He has amber and black glass eyes which we believe are probably original to him.
Berry's slightly prominent muzzle has been shaved and he has retained his original nose and mouth stitching.
Berry has retained all five black claw stitches to both of his feet and he has four stitches on one paw and three remaining on the other.
He is rather a quiet Old bear these days as his tilt growler nolonger works but this doesn't really matter because Berry's Wonderful face speaks volumes for him instead !
He has a pretty good coverage all over of long wavy blonde coloured mohair with just some thinning and bare patches more evident on his back area but nothing too detrimental in my opinion really for such a Grand looking bear .
His paw pads are all covered in their original cotton cloth covering and are in fair condition really with a little light age staining and two holes .
Berry has two small holes in in his cotton pads revealing a little of the wood wool filling beneath , one being in his left paw pad and the other in his right foot pad , neither of these are too worrying or too detrimental to him as their is no threat of leakage and the woodwool is held firmly and securely beneath .
Berry comes Festively dressed for Christmas in his Santa hat and Festive Santa bow tie and carrying his little Jingle bells .

She loves trimming up the Christmas tree and room with all the Good old fashioned decorations , making paper chains and paper lanterns and wrapping up all the presents in brown paper and string and with a cutting of Ivy tucked into it on the top so everyone knows the their present is from her!
She might be only a little old bear at just 10" of a bear handful but she has the biggest kindest heart of all !
Little Ivy dates to the early 1930s and is a darling of a little English bear probably by Chiltern or Farnell.
She is a well loved and hugged little bear who has had all her mohair loved and hugged away over the years leaving just the tiniest little tuft here and there but this just proves how much Once upon a time Little Ivy was Loved!
She is stuffed with kapok to her and body and limbs and excelsior to her little head .
Little Ivy has been well loved and hugged and therefore has a cute slightly squashy old bear tummy but we can always forgive an old bear being loved , hugged and squeezed cant we?
Her little paw pads are covered in their original brown cotton material covering but her little foot pads have been lovingly and neatly recovered for her at some time in her life.
Her tiny amber and black eyes are later glass replacements and suit her little face perfectly .
She has had most of her nose stitching and mouth stitching kissed away and well why wouldn't she ? ........she is totally adorable as little old well loved and hugged bears go !!
Little Ivy is all trimmed up herself too and ready for Christmas at yours and comes along dressed in her best Christmas Ivy green coloured knitted Old dress and fairy lights necklace and she will bring a little Santa sack along with her too with a tiny Christmas tree in it and a surprise present in it just for you for adopting her this Christmas time !
