Red roses are a must with Oscar too not only for giving but for wearing and Oscar is never without a freshly picked red rose grown from his own garden !
Oscar is indeed a truly Handsome Chiltern bear , he measures a very cuddle some 22" in height too.
He is dare I say it not a thin bear he is a rather portly bear who is very generous with his portions and hugs.
Oscar dates to C1940/50 and is a five-way jointed old bear and even though he is a chubby old bear he is very fit and agile and all his joints turn and move well for him.
He has amber and black glass eyes which are original to him and he has retained his original nose and mouth stitching perfectly.
He is stuffed with kapok to his body and limbs and woodwool to his head.
Oscar's paw pads are all covered in a rexine material and just show some surface rubbing to the surface, and have no holes or repairs to any of them.
He has retained most of his black stitched claw stitches to his paws and foot pads and has just lost one on his right paw.
Oscar comes dressed very handsomely in his vintage black velvet waistcoat with red silk rose pinned to it and spotty silk ribbon neck tie. He will also bring along with some heart shaped chocolates for you and a beautiful red wooden heart to celebrate being an Old Valentine bear.

Bertie-Braces has his original blue and white printed Chad Valley Company Hygienic toys label sewn into his side seam of his trousers.

He loves reading books and all the Great literary classics and poetry of course.
Pushkin is a cute little German Schuco bear dating to the 1930s.
You can tell by his funny little face that he takes life a bit serious and can look a bit worried or upset at times , he just needs lots of love and reassurance.
Pushkin is a mere little handful of a bear measuring just 8" in height.
This lovely little bear has a coverage of short clipped dark golden coloured mohair with no real signs of loss or thinning to his body and limbs but he does show loss to his left ear along the edges
He has however been through the 'Loved Wars' a little and he is a little hard of hearing too as his left ear is a little thinner and smaller than his right ear so he can only half hear you but as the Great musician Beethoven was deaf this doesn't worry Pushkin in the slightest !
His felt on his foot pads is worn in parts and he has a couple of small wear holes in them but there is no leakage of stuffing or anything t really worry about he says!
It would appear his felt paw pads have been neatly and kindly recovered for him at some time in his little bear life.
He has kept all of his black stitched claw stitches on his foot pads but lost a couple or so on his paws.
Pushkin is stuffed solidly and firmly throughout with woodwool.
He is a wire jointed bear so when you raise one arm the other raises at the same time. However his right leg has had some bear surgery at some time to re secure it so it swings separately from his left leg but is securely held and nothing to worry about .
He comes as you see him with his silk ribbon neck bows and a tiny golden bee tied around his neck too which secretly means 'Be Mine '
This lovely little German bear here is worried that no one will love him because he is not perfect or as handsome as some of the other bears but we have assured him we are certain that someone will Love him because he is so very cute !
Should Pushkin here be pulling at your heart strings this Valentines week he will bring along with him a little heart for you and some heart shaped chocolates, and a tiny rose too in way of saying "I Love You "

Lovell is a real old well loved and hugged Old French bear dating to C1920.
He is as bald as a bare bear can be bless him ! He lost his eyesight many a year ago in a battle over him and was kindly given stitched eyes so his eyesight is not as good as it used to be but at least he has two ears to hear with !
Poor Old Lovell measures approximately 14" in height and is a jointed Old soldier with a touch of old bear rheumatics these days , his legs and right arm all turn well for him but his left arm and neck are rather stiff and don't turn like they used to when he was younger but when you are over eighty years old you can rather be forgiven can't you?
His left arm is a little limp due to the wood wool stuffing inside it shifting slightly downwards from the top probably from being carried over the battlefield of Love.
The woodwool has shifted a little too in both of his legs at the knees so he is a little unsteady on his legs so might need a shoulder to lean on when getting up.
All of this fine Old bears paw pads have been recovered in beige cotton material many moons ago and he has lost all of black claw stitches .
What a funny old face Lovell has bless him with his stitched eyes and no nose or mouth stitching but we have to admit this is all part of his wonderful character and charm and it shows to us all just how much a bear can still be loved regardless of their injuries and how they look and can still be here to tell the tale with us all and hopefully be loved again !
Lovell comes dressed in his vintage knitted vest with Royalty enamel pin pinned to it and wearing his Patriotic ribbon neck bow and carrying his CASUALITY OF LOVE tag . Should you have fallen for this old soldier he will bring a heart for you and some chocolates and a red rose too.

Brause is a Wonderful C1950/60 Steiff 'Original' fawn/beige coloured bear measuring 13" in height.
He is a five-way jointed Steiff bear and all his joints turn and move admirably for him
He has his original brown and black eyes and has retained perfectly his original distinctive brown stitched nose and mouth stitching.
