She adores Christmas and all the glittering twinkleness that it brings!
Amethyst is a lovely fluffy , cuddly Chiltern bear dating to C1940/50.
This sweet little bear meausres 14" in height and is a little cherubic chubby of a bear who likes her honey.
She is stuffed firmly with kapok to her body and limbs and wood wool to her head and happy old bear thoughts and memories of Christmas of course too!
Once upon a time Aethyst used to squeak with delight when you pressed her tummy but she is a quiet little bear these day as her press squeaker is all pooped out but this doesnt realy matter because her sweet looking face speaks volumes for her instead!
Amethyst is a five-way jointed little bear and all her joints move and turn well for her.
This lovely little Chiltern bear has a wonderful coverage all over of her blonde coloured mohair with no real evidence of loss or thinning .
Amethyst's paw pads are all covered in their original brown velvet material covering and are all in good order with no holes or repairs to any of them .
Her foot pads just have a tiny bit of surface wear/ rubbing to the velvet pile at the tips but this is not serious or detrimental to her.
She has kept a couple of her original black claw stiches on some of her pads but lost a few along the way in her bear years but she can be forgiven for this.
Amethyst has perfect eyes sight too as she has retained her original amber and black glass eyes and original nose and mouth stitching.
This lovely little bear is hoping that she will brighten your Christmas and comes festively dressed with her purple velvet ribbon neck boe and glittering baubles around her neck and she will bring along with her an extra little sparkle just for you to hang on your Christmas tree and some little festive treats too .

He really suits his name perfectly as he is the most brilliant ,bright golden looking Chiltern bear ever with a glowing smile and bright eyes and a coverage to match of the brightest golden coloured mohair you could ever wish for and which really doesnt seem to have faded over his eighty or so bear years!
He dates to C1920/30 and measures approximately 17" in height.
Goldwin is a five-way jointed little bear , his joints all turn and move but his arms are just a little stiff with a touch of old bear rheumatics.
This truly beautiful Chiltern bear has his original clear glass eyes and nose and mouth stitching appear to be original to him to.
He has some thinning and a little light bareness in parts this is mainly restricted to the top of both his arms , close to his body and a little near to his front neckline at the top. However in my opinion this is all quite hard to see really and is not detrimental to him really either.
Goldwin is stuffed softly and firmly with kapok to his body and limbs and a mixture of wood wool and kaok to his head and muzzle.
His paw pads and foot pads are all covered in their original beige coloured velvet and in good condition with no holes or repairs to any of them. There is however perhaps a little light fading to the velvet and light marking which is to be expected.
Goldwins foot pads are card lined and he has reatined perfectly all four black claw stitches to each foot pad.
He has retained three claw stitches to his left paw and lost one and on his right paw he has retained two and one is broken and one is lost.
This wonderful rare Chiltern bear is hoping that he will find a loving home for Christmas and comes wearing his velvet neck tie with Vintage antique style Christmas medalion around his neck . He will also bring along with him some extra little Christmas treats for you should you adopt him that is and a twinkling star to han on your Christmas tree!
