Listing Detail Tabs

We have been donated this lovely little fellow, which we think was made in 1970.

He has been hand made by Merrythought, Ironbridge, Shropshire in England, who have made bears since 1930. These were made in limited editions of around 250, but unfortunately we don't have the papers with him.

This one is dressed as a Beefeater, and appears to have some age to him, but still appears in very good condition. We are not sure if the colours around the hat are faded or supposed to be like that. He is a good big size too.

Stands approx 400mm high.

We don't usually make fixed price offers, if unsold, item is re-listed, so we suggest setting up an auto-bid so you don't miss out.
