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.
