You will always recognise him too as he is the bear with the Station masters Railway cap on with its enamel badge with a Letter R on it , a pair of tiny metal binoculars around his neck for spotting those trains from a distance and pinned to his chest on a ribbon is a little gilt train medallion as he is a Junior bear member of the Railway Society and a little pocket watch charm so he can keep a check on all the trains arrivals and departures !
Little Cuthbert Cribbins is a dear little bear with many of the characters of both early German and American bears . He has a long straight body like both the American and German bears , horizontal nose stitching again similar to both as is his short golden clipped mohair . His ears are set into slits in the top of his head again some American and German companies adopted this style for securing the ears to the head.
However personally I think that Little Cuthbert Cribbins is likely to be a German bear fellow !
He is a five way jointed old bear and all his joints turn and move well for him.
Cuthbert has perfect eyesight which is a good thing when you a train spotter and his amber and black glass eyes are quite original to him.
His horizontal nose and mouth stitching is in good order with just a couple of the nose stitches slightly faded to a brown shade over the passing years but this is nothing detrimental to him or his good old bear looks.
His golden clipped mohair coverage shows some thinning and a little bareness in parts from being loved but we can always forgive a bear for this cant we?
Little Cuthbert Cribbins is stuffed firmly from head to paw with wood wool and Steam train adventures .
He has three black claw stitches to each paw and foot and his paw pads have been very neatly recovered for him many years ago.
Cuthbert comes dressed in his newly knitted little outfit and wearing of course his Station masters cap and his Railway loving accessories.
We are certain of one thing about this lovely little bear fellow that should you like to adopt him , Little Cuthbert Cribbons arrival at yours will be very Punctual as he is always on time and Never ever late !
