I find it difficult to be productive in the summer as there is so much to do - outside work etc. I finally have two clown bears ready for adoption. I'm also working on some Christmas decorations and hope to have some of them listed in a day or so. If feels good to be back in the swing of things. These bears are collectibles and not made for children. They are designed and made entirely by me and come with a signed hang-tag. Shipping is $12.50 for Expedited mail or $15.00 for UPS within the U.S. and Canda. International customers, please email me for a shipping quote. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me and thanks for peeking!
1."Peggity the Clown" is a 5 inch teddy that is made from German mini mohair, and is fully disc-jointed. She is a new pattern, with slimmer body and legs and rounder head. She is firmly stuffed with excelsior, like the old bears, and is gently weighted with steel shot. Peggity has dark brown ultra suede paw pads that have tiny holes, to allow bits of excelsior to show through, and a tiny waxed nose. Her face, ears and paws have been shaded with permanent fabric paints, for a vintage look. Peggity wears a green paisly print ruffle and a green wool felt hat. Both the ruffle and the hat have been aged and distressed. The ruffle ties in the back with green silk ribbon. Both the hat and ruffle are removable.
2. "Thackery the Clown" is 6 inches tall and made from turquoise, hand dyed German Shulte Mohair. He is fashioned after the old Steiff clown bears. His mohair has been aged and distressed, with some small bald patches. Thackery is fully disc jointed and has a waxed nose. He is firmly stuffed with excelsior and granulate and gently weighted with stainless steel shot. Thackery has ultra suede paw pads that have tiny holes, to allow bits of excelsior to show through. His face, ears and paws have been shaded with permanent fabric paints, for a vintage look. Thackery wears a ruffle of multicoloured fabric - not sure what it it but it has a lovely silky sheen to it. It fastenes at the back with black silk ribbon. Thackery's black hat is made from molded felt and is decorated with pompoms and has been dyed and aged. Both the hat and collar are removable.
