CHAPTER 2 - THE GREAT ESCAPE
Once Upon A Time Bears
come to you
sprinkled with love
Scents of lavender
clean & prettily wrapped with a lavender bag
Eduardo is a Farnell bear and a very well loved one too at that , he dates to C1930 and Once upon a time he was a lovely peachy apricot colour, but these days his mohair coat which is a little sparse has faded to a lighter colour especially at the front of him but at the back you can still see his apricot tones.
Lovely Old Eduardo measures 16" in bear height.
Poor Old Eduardo we don't know what tragedies he went through many years ago to his little face at the sides and under his chin but he has certainly been lovingly stitched and darned and darned and stitched by a kind nursie in his hour of needs and perhaps one day he might be brave enough to share it with us !
Eduardo is a five way jointed old bear and all his joints move but they are a little stiff these days with old bear rheumatics but that doesnt stop this little bear in doing things and getting around.
His nose and mouth stitching are just about all there if not a little skew-whiff due to his surgery, but he can still smile happily though it all .
Eduardo's little arms are a little shorter these days as his paws have been tucked up and sewn at some time in his bear life but this doesn't bother him too much and he still manages to dip his honey paw in the honey jar!!
This cute little Farnell bear is stuffed not only with honey but kapok to his body and limbs and woodwool to his head.
He has retained all four of his original black claw stitches to his feet and his cotton cloth foot pads have just had a few neat and tiny stitches added.
Eduardo comes very proudly dressed in his vintage waistcoat and what would be music to his ears now was if he could find a loving home!
REF B873 SORRY I HAVE BEEN ADOPTED
She loves nothing more than tending also to the lavender patch in her garden too and at the End of Summer collecting it in her basket and hanging it up to dry to make and fill little lavender bags for all her bear friends to help keep the moths away from them all.
Lobelia is a lovely sweet and pretty faced English /Irish Pedigree bear dating to C1950.
She measures 15" in height and is a lovely soft cuddle stuffed with kapok to her body and limbs and a mixture of wood wool and kapok to her head.
Her little paw pads are all covered in a rexine/suedette type covering and are all in good condition with no damage to any of them.
She has retained her original small amber and black glass eyes .
Lobelia has a cute protruding rounded shaped muzzle with a little round black felt nose and black mouth stitching below it.
She has a pretty good coverage all over of light golden coloured mohair with just a small bare patch on her back near to her central back seam and some thinning towards the top of her back near to her shoulders but nothing really serious or detrimental to her.
Lovely Lobelia comes dressed in her pretty purple coloured hand knitted cardigan and lilac coloured head band.
She also brings along with her a little sprig of purple flowers and of course a bag of fragrant lavender which she has picked especially for you should you like to adopt her .
