His little nose has had quite a few of his stitches kissed away too from all those Good Night and Good Morning kisses he once received and grateful thanks for accompanying his owner on brave adventures and scary times but sadly this is not the case now as Baby Farley has been completely forgotten about .
He is a adorable looking little 14" Chiltern bear , yes well loved and hugged which is just how an Old bear should be really isn't it So we can forgive him for a little bareness in parts cant we ?
Baby Farley dates to C1950 and is a five-way jointed little bear , his arms and legs all turn but do have a little touch of stiffness , however his head no-longer really turns due to a touch of old bear rheumatics which he suffers with .
However it doesn't pain him as much in the warmer Summer months!
His paw pads are all covered in their original brown velvet material and he has retained some of his black claw stitches but lost a few along the way too.
He is stuffed with kapok to his body and limbs making him a lovely soft cuddle and wood wool to his head.
Baby Farley has been staying in the orphanage here at Once upon a time bears with the other youngsters but really needs a loving home and mummy.
He comes dressed in his vintage little knitted pants and vests and around his neck on blue silk ribbon is his favourite little rocking horse toy.
We do hope that we can find this adorable little bear a Loving home one day very soon !
REF B1008 SORRY I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED
She is rather a patriotic little bear towards her home country and although she doesn't live there now she remembers it with great fondness and her favourite colours are quite naturally red ,white and blue so she likes to always wear something in these colours to make her feel close to home.
We are not quite sure of Colettes maker in France but she is rather typical of quite a few French bears with her small clear glass eyes . thin horizontally stitched nose and coloured felt paw pads .
Colette dates to C1940/50 and she measures 13" in height and has a light coverage all over of white long wavy , wispy mohair with general thinning and bareness in parts all over her body.
Colette is stuffed firmly throughout from head to paw with wood wool again typical of French bears.
Her paw pads are covered in their original red felt material , her right paw pad covering has had a few neat little darns to it on the tip, however her foot pads have been very neatly recovered for her at some time in her little bear life.
Colette has retained some of her original black claw stitches but has lost a couple along the way over the years.
She is a five-way jointed little French bear , her joints do turn but her arms are a little stiff with a touch of old bear rheumatics but this doesn't seem to bother her to greatly!
She comes dressed in her Vintage dress and with her pretty little necklet on silk ribbon around her neck.
Colette is longing to find a home with perhaps some other French bears for company and to talk to and reminisce about happy bear times in France because it can get a bit lonely being on your own with no one to talk or to understand what you are saying.
