I always have fun with themed bears, and this one was no exception. I knew when I found this lovely prim pocket, that it was perfect to hold a tiny bear. I am delighted to present Jasper, the Halloween Teddy. Jasper is in my Etsy shop and you can view him by clicking Duffyantiques Etsy Shop

Jasper is 3 1/4 inches tall and is made from hand dyed, gold German Shulte mohair. He is fully disc jointed and stuffed with excelsior and weighted with steel shot, just like all the big bears. Jasper's mohair has also been shaded with permanent fabric paints, on his face, ears, and paws. He has tiny German amber glass eyes, and a sparse nose, that has been lightly waxed. Jasper has leather paw pads, that have tiny holes, to allow bits of excelsior to show through.

Jasper wears a hand made Halloween hat and neck ruffle. The hat is made from heavy black paper decorated with a ruffle made from black, orange and white crepe paper. The neck ruffle is also made from crepe paper and both the hat and ruffle are removable, although tweezers are needed to tie the bow on the neck ruffle.

Jasper nestles into a black, wool pocket that is decorated with pumpkins and beads. It has a metal hanger that is retractable. This set is an original, designed and made by me, Brenda Power, and will come with a signed hang tag. It is an adult collectible and not meant for children. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me, and thanks for peeking!
