Stand­ing 9 inch­es (23cm), Green Leaf is an OOAK antique style weight­ed art bear, lov­ing­ly hand­made by Ate­lier Laven­del, using my designs and high-qual­i­ty all nat­ur­al mate­ri­als.
Hand­made in Ger­many. This bear is made with high qual­ity 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 and his claws with cot­ton embroi­dery floss. I used organ­ic clean wood shav­ings  to stuff the body and the limbs  and added to his chub­by bel­ly some steel shot, which is safe­ly placed with­in a linen bag, for more love­ly weight.
This bear is sym­pa­thet­i­cal­ly aged and hand paint­ed using non-tox­ic pas­tel colours.
His full joint­ed arms, legs and head are mov­able and pose able.
His scarf of pure vin­tage silk, his cowl of gor­geous artist spoon wool/silk yarn and match­ing hat with a green leaf of pure wool felt can be put off. I intend­ed this bear as a lit­tle trea­sure to dis­play or as a spe­cial heir­loom toy to an old­er child for gen­tle play.
ECO friend­ly.
Dry clean only.
Hand­made in pet- and smoke- free home.
SAFETY NOTE: I rec­om­mend this bear for col­lec­tors 6+  :   )

Martha is now avail­able here .
