Her ears over the years have been given a few re-securing neat stitches and her tail too !
This Rare lovely Old Chinchilla has a little trouble at time in standing up so needs a little help in propping her up but she can be forgiven for this as she is a very Rare and Old Lady!

He is rather shy about his musical talent and to look at him you wouldn't think he was that is until you turn his tail and id plays rather like a street organ! It isnt really a tune I have to say more a tinkling melodic noise but its very sweet!

He is a lovely gentle natured little dog very loving and obedient and he and Walnut our other Pekingese dog have bonded very well together since they first met here at Once upon a time bears.
As to his maker we are are not sure and we have not come across another one quite like him before I have to say but its very possible he could even be by Farnell or possibly he was made by a German toy company , but I don't believe him to be by Steiff I have to say.
He has a lovely cream coloured fluffy mohair coat with a brown velvet muzzle and amber and black glass eyes.
Little Spruce is stuffed firmly throughout with wood wool and a few dog biscuits and dinners no doubt!
On the back of his front left leg there is a teeny wee peep of wood wool showing through but this is extremely hard to see and is not worrying him or causing any problems.

Snowberry is a wonderful early old rabbit dating to C1920 and she is stuffed firmly throughout with wood wool .
She has a fair covering of creamy white mohair with some losses , thinning and bare patches all commensurate with being loved and hugged over the years which is hardly surprising when you are as sweet and adorable as him.
She has lost all of his mohair from his ears bless him really and just has the odd little tuft here and there but this doesn't bother Snowberry as she can still hear well !
She has retained her original pink and clear glass eyes and has a a few tiny rabbity whiskers and you can still see her little nose and mouth stitching faintly too.
