Alfredo

Standing 5 inches (12cm), this bear is an OOAK antique vintage style weighted artist teddy  bear, lovingly handmade by Atelier Lavendel, using my original designs and high-quality natural materials. Handmade in Germany.

This cuddly bear is made with high qual­ity hand painted antique style mohair fabric from traditional working German manufacture Steiff Schulte, which gives him a lovely well much loved vintage appearance. His original glass eyes are handmade in the Lauscha glass manufacture, Germany. I hand embroidered his nose with cotton embroidery floss and waxed it with organic bees wax. I used organic clean wool and wood shavings to stuff the body and the limbs and added to his chubby belly some steel shot for more lovely weight. This bear is sympathetically aged using several techniques and hand painted with non-toxic colours.
His jointed head is movable and pose able. His cowl of a gorgeous mohar/silk blend yarn can be put off.

I intended this artist teddy bear as a little treasure to display or as a special heirloom toy to an older child for gentle play. Ready to ship. ECO friendly. Dry clean only. Handmade in pet- and smoke- free home.
