Pullman is a lovely old English bear dating to C1930/40.
He measures 17" in height and he is a five-way jointed old bear and all his joints turn and move well.
Pullman is stuffed with a mixture of wood wool and kapok and probably a few snacks for the Railway buffet too !! His head is stuffed with kapok and facts about trains and his body is firmly stuffed with kapok.
His arms and legs are mostly stuffed with kapok he just has a small amount of wood wool in the paw s and the same is at the lower part of his feet too.
He has retained perfectly his original clear glass eyes with painted backs and his nose and mouth stitching.
Both of his foot pads have holes in them revealing a little of the woodwool beneath but it is held firmly and securely and there is no leakage.
Pullman is hoping to find a railway loving home for bears and he comes dressed in his Best Railway porter knitted waistcoat and pinned to his waistcoat is a magnificent antique style Railway pin which he treasures almost as much as his train.
This lovely old bear is hoping that he will find a new station to arrive at and there arn't any too long delays for him

He dates to before 1920 and is a lovely little early German bear with his original small black wooden shoe button eyes.
Little Soldier Woeful measures just 10" in height bless him and is stuffed throughout with wood wool and War time memories!
He is a five-way jointed little bear and his head and neck joint are secure and move and turn well for him as do both of his arms and his left leg but as previously mentioned earlier his right leg joint needs some attention if desired but is still held on securely .
Soldier Woeful does indeed look a little sorry for him self these days and is praying that he will find a loving home for Old soldier bears so he can remissness and share his war stories with them as many of his old pals have sadly gone and left him all alone!
Soldier Woeful has five black claw stitches to each foot and he has four to each paw .
His paw and foot pads are all covered in their original felt although they do have some holes in them all revealing a glimpse of some of the wood wool beneath in parts but this is held firmly and securely and is not causing any concerns to this little old bear.
Should you have fallen in love with this wonderful early little old bear he comes with fragments of an old WW1 French flag around his neck and carrying a tiny old silk Union jack flag and of course his WW1 Bamforth song card that you can see in the background entitled "WHEN YOU COME HOME" and a special Once upon a time bears CASUALTY OF WAR tag for you to fill in for him.
