Poor Old Geoffrey we really haven't the heart to tell him that he doesn't have enough money saved up still to buy a home yet alone the deposit either but as he is a very handsome and cute old Chiltern bear we are quite sure that with all his good looks he will find a loving home one day soon without having to raid his money box in the future to buy one!
Geoffrey is a Chiltern bear dating to C1940/50 and he measures 16" in height .
He has the cutest expressive looking Chiltern face which is bright and alert looking and he has retained all his original features perfectly including his amber and black glass eyes ,and his characteristic Chiltern shield shaped stitched nose and mouth stitching.
He has a pretty good coverage all over of light coloured mohair with some generally thinning in parts but nothing to noticeable or detrimental to him really in our opinion. However there is a little more thinning and bareness on the top of his head and above his nose probably from all the loving and kisses he once received but we can always forgive a Old bear for this cant we?
He is a lovely cuddle of a bear because he stuffed firmly with soft filling like kapok to his body and limbs and wood wool to his head.
Geoffrey's paw pads are all covered in their original rexine type material and show some signs of surface wear and rubbing but have no holes in any of them.
He has all four black claw stitches preserved on both paws and one foot but has lost one on his right foot which is nothing worrying for an old bear!
Geoffrey is a quiet and thoughtful old bear these days and Once upon a time he used to squeak with affection when his tummy was squeezed but with age he has gone rather silent over the passing years but his lovely face speaks volumes for him these days so it doesn't really matter or bother him!
This lovely old fellow comes smartly dressed to you wearing his newly knitted green waistcoat and pinned to it is little faux pocket watch .
Geoffrey has his paws crossed that he will find his perfect home soon and somehow we think he will do too !
