She measures just 10 1/2 " in height and is just the prettiest , cuddliest , cutest , fluffiest darling of a little bear.
There is absolutely no wonder that she never struggles to fit in or make new bear friends where ever she goes as she has such a lovely sweet and easy going nature and you can tell that just by simply looking at her cute little bear face and of course she loves nothing more than a little gentle cuddle and a hug too being just a wee little bear !
Little Alice Rose dates to C1950 and is in beautiful condition .
She has an excellent coverage all over of beautiful clean and long, fluffy, light golden coloured mohair with no losses or thinning to her overall coverage.
Alice Rose is a five-way jointed little bear , her arms and legs all move and turn well for her but her head / neck joint is a little stiff with a touch of bear rheumatics but this doesn't seem to trouble or worry her in the slightest.
She has also retained perfectly her very kissable little oval bound and stitched characterful Chad valley nose and inverted Y shaped stitched mouth.
Little Alice Rose is indeed a proper little poppet of a bear at just 10 1/2", she is stuffed firmly with a kapok type soft material filling to her body and limbs and wood wool to her head.
Her paws and foot pads are all covered in a suedette type material and are all in very good order and condition .
She has retained perfectly her three original black claw stitches to each of her paws and all four to each of her foot pads.
Alice Rose is totally adorable and we are quite sure that quite a few bear loving heats will be broken over her .
Should you be smitten by Little Alice Rose she will come along to you with her little Once upon a time book charm and a little walking bear charm around her neck on silk ribbon and lots of bear love too!
REF B990 SORRY I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED
He has a long slightly barrel shaped straight body which is firmly stuffed with woodwool and honey of course!
Old Longfellow is not a big headed old bear in any shape or form and what is curiously different about Old Longfellow here is his small sized head in proportion to the rest of him !
Its only when Longfellow is viewed really from the side that you see this really and we think this just makes him stand out from the rest of the bear crowd if anything and makes him more adorable!
Longfellow really is a very funny Old bear not just in looks but he also has a great sense of fun too and is a great bear to be around because he just cheers you up and brings a smile to your face in a instance!
He dates to C1930 and we believe that he is very probably a American bear however he does have some traits and looks of some German bears but we still feel he looks more American with his straight long barrel shaped body and close set eyes and small blunt shaped muzzle with triangular shaped nose stitching resting and covering over the end of it.
He is a five-way jointed old bear and all of his joints turn and move well for him .
This lovely Old bear has a very good coverage all over of light golden coloured mohair with very little thinning or loss really.
Longfellow was made rather unusually as a padless Old bear on his paws but he does have four original black claw stitches still present to each paw!
His felt pads on his feet have been very neatly replaced for him at some time in his bear life and neither of his feet have any claw stitches present and I believe that he never had any originally either.
He has retained his original small glass painted back eyes and he has lost some small traces of the original paint in places but nothing too detrimental .
Longfellow has a triangular stitched nose which looks to have lost some of its original stitches in parts and perhaps even been fiddled with a bit too adding to his curious looks and charms however he has lost his mouth stitching along the way over the years but honestly you really don't even notice this when you look at his funny old face!
Longfellow like all bears loves his honey and should you adopt him he comes with his little glass jar of faux honey around his neck incase of hungry old bear emergencies and wearing his Pooh bear styled red knitted jumper too !
