Regular price £160.00

Brian is a very happy, shaggy and comical one of a kind, artist teddy bear by Barbara-Ann Bears in fabulous blue hand-dyed mohair

Brian stands 8.5 inches( 22 cm) tall and is 6.5 inches ( 17 cm) sitting.

As you can see Brian is a very sweet and friendly teddy bear, he has a lovely warm smile and a twinkle in his eye, he just wants to see people smiling back at him. He is very blue, a little wild around the edges and extremely lovable. You might see him gazing at the sky on sunny days, just to soak up all the blueness, you might think he's doing nothing, but soaking up blueness is very important to Brian.

Brian is mostly made from a long, wildly tousled fluffy mohair that Barbara has hand dyed in a beautiful array of blues, there's turquoise, cyan, Caspian blue, aqua and sky blue and lots of shades in between. His tummy is a wildly distressed, fluffy mohair that Barbara has dyed a rich sky blue and the fronts of his ears and underside of his tail are a similar colour but in a dense straight pile mohair. Brian's paw pads are made from a very short silk which Barbara has hand-dyed in more shades of blue and thus coordinate with his main colours beautifully.

Brian has beautiful, hand painted glass eyes with hand coloured eyelids, a splendid nose embroidered from individual threads to complement his colouring and he has a sweet, friendly smile. Brian is stuffed with polyester stuffing and glass beads which give him a little extra weight and make him a little more cuddly.

Brian is a happy and sweet teddy bear, if you love blue he could be the bear for you. If you search the internet for the qualities of blue you will find that 'Blue is the colour of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolises trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect.' Yes, all of that in one little bear, how could you possibly resist him?

We will enclose photos with Brian and we are happy to put in a greetings card and gift tags, maybe a birthday card or one for another occasion, you can choose one from our greetings card page and let us know which card you would like.
