Kathy Martin takes a look at the new annual bear from Teddy Bears of Witney. ...
If you fancy getting 2011 off to a flying start, why not treat yourself to the 6th and latest annual bear from Teddy Bears of Witney? Full of character, the Witney 2011 Bear has all the charm of a teddy which has lived a long life and come up smiling.
Like the shop’s previous annual teddies, he is inspired by an old bear so even though he is brand new, he has the look and feel of a vintage teddy. His brass-gold mohair has been aged and his ears appear to have been removed and then re-attached rather clumsily at some stage in his life. This, combined with his deliberately distressed stockinette vest, gives him a gentle charm that is hard to resist.
A limited edition of 150, he measures 26cm high and is available exclusively from Teddy Bears of Witney.
