A Once upon a time bears tag
Hettie and her pretty sister Lettie were born to be on the stage really as their parents were both theatrical too and the girls took their first steps onto a stage when they were both very young bears.
Hettie is a Chiltern bear and dates to the 1930's and there is not much in age difference between her and her sister Lettie as they both came from the same family and have always been together through bearhood.
This lovely old bear like just her sister hails from down South but came up North looking for fame and love.
She measures approximately 19" in height and still has a lovely bear figure even if she is over eighty years old now.!
Hettie is stuffed softly with kapok to her body and limbs making her a lovely cuddle of a bear and her head is stuffed with wood wool and Happy memories of days gone by.
Hettie is a five-way jointed old bear and all her joints move well for her still with not even the merest hint of old bear rheumatics !!
We are led to believe that Hettie lost her eyesight many years ago but was fortunately rushed to a bears hospital for the blind and given new eyes so she could see again and she has never looked back!!
Hettie has a pretty good coverage all over of her light golden coloured mohair with some thinning and loss in parts but nothing too detrimental or noticeable in our opinion.
Most of the loss is really showing across her forehead and around her left eye and a little on her back .
Hettie's paw pads are all covered in their original cotton twill material , and all her pads are in a pretty reasonable condition with just a little wear showing to a small part of the side seam where the material joins the mohair on both foot pads but again nothing too worrying or detrimental.
Hettie comes dressed in her Antique blue blouse with a vintage twinkling blue paste brooch pinned to it and wearing her antique style necklet and blue lace head band.
Hettie is rather hoping that she might be adopted along with her sister Lettie as they have always been together but understands if not and dearly hopes they can still keep in touch perhaps by letter ?
