Francesco is an impressive and beautifully coloured, one of a kind, artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears in luxurious fluffy faux fur and mohair

Francesco is a magnificent teddy bear, he stands 24 inches (61 cm) tall and is 18 inches (46 cm) sitting.

Francesco is a beautifully coloured teddy bear, he's like a big Christmas jumper ready to hug you and keep you warm through the long, cold nights of winter (or the shorter, warmer nights of spring, summer and autumn). When the wind is howling, the snow piling up outside your door and your pack of faithful huskies have decided it looks a bit too cold to take you to the shops, Francesco will be there at your side. He'll snuggle up while you watch your favourite movies, read all the books you had meant to read when you had a spare moment and while you tweet and post hugely exaggerated accounts about how half an inch of snow has brought about the end of civilisation, sometimes you need a good backstory for a day of intense cuddling.

Francesco is made from the most gorgeous and luxurious faux fur and mohair, mainly a dense, long and fluffy faux fur which is banded in lovely deep shades of blue, olive, pistachio, red and amber all tipped with black. His tummy, the backs of his ears and the underside of his tail are a long, dense red faux fur which is subtly banded with black. His face and the fronts of his ears are a very, long and fluffy cream mohair with a warmer beige backing. Francesco has hand dyed velvet paw pads that complement his mohair perfectly.

Francesco has beautiful, large, hand painted glass eyes with hand coloured eyelids, a wonderfully embroidered nose, sewn from individual threads to match his mohair and a warm, loving expression. He is stuffed with plastic pellets and polyester stuffing to make him more poseable, a little heavier (he is quite a heavy bear) and more cuddly.

Francesco is a large and very impressive bear, he has beautiful rich colouring and a calm and loving personality. He's a bear who will stick with you through thick and thin, always trying to give you a warm, contented feeling, whatever the world and weather might throw at you.

We will enclose photos with Francesco 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.

As with all our bears Francesco is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14.
