Meet Wilfred, a miniature art bear. Sstanding 5 inches (12cm), this bear is an OOAK antique vintage style weighted art bear, lovingly handmade by Atelier Lavendel, using my original designs and high-quality natural materials. Handmade in Germany.

This 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 wood shavings to stuff the body and the limbs and added to his chubby belly some steel shot for more lovely weight. I have chosen pure wool felt for his paws. This bear is sympathetically aged using several techniques and hand painted with non-toxic colours. His full jointed arms, legs and head are movable and pose able. His cowl of hand dyed vintage cotton fabric 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. Ready to ship.ECO friendly. Dry clean only. Handmade in pet- and smoke- free home. SAFETY NOTE: I recommend this bear for collectors 6+ : ) .
