There is something VERY appealing about clown bears.  The are just the sweetest bears.  I have always loved Steiff bears.  "The Juggler" is my version of the old Steiff clown bears, I hope you like him.  I have decided to list him here for a few days before I either move him to Ebay or my Etsy shop.

"The Juggler" is 6 1/2 inches tall, without his hat and just under 8 inches, with his hat on.  He is made from hand dyed,  semi distressed, German Shulte mohair.  He is fully disc-jointed, has matte German glass eyes, a sparse waxed nose and distressed wool felt paw pads.  He is firmly stuffed with excelsior and gently weighted with stainless steel shot.  His mohair has been aged and he is missing mohair in some spots.  The Juggler's" face, ears and paws have been shaded with permanent fabric paints.

"The Juggler's" hat and collar are removable.  They are made from distressed wool felt, and the collar is edged with vintage silk ribbon.  His juggling wire is made from sturdy copper wire and Fimo balls. 

I will only be able to ship to the U.S. as I can sendhis UPS to the continental USA.  The cost is $15.00.  There is a possibility of back to work legislation for our postal workers this week.  If someone overseas is interested, I would be willing to hold him with a deposit.

I've been playing and adapting, again lol!  I thought I was done with bunnies, at least for this year, but it's interesting how soon I can be tempted once I think of trying something a bit different :o)

Miss Arabella is a fraction under 4 inches tall - she is all white, except for some light shading around here eyes, paws, tail and ear tips.  She is fully jointed with wire in her arms to hold her basket a little more tightly.  Miss Arabella is firmly stuffed with excelsior and a little stainless steel shot.  Her amber German glass eyes are framed with white cording, to help them stand out.  She has nylon whiskers and a simple pale yellow organza ribbon around her neck, decorated with a vintage mini bell.  Miss Arabella stands nicely with her little shoes, hand made from wood and yellow organza.   She carries a tiny basket filled with hand made Fimo carrots.  Miss Arabella is $250.00 and shipping of $15.00 UPS in North America.  At the moment. Canada is in the middle of a postal strike, so unfortunately I will be unable to ship overseas on this bunny.  If you have any questions or are interested in adopting Miss Arabella, please feel free to email me.  Thanks for peeking!
