Harry Huckleberry, a one of a kind, mohair and wool fabric artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears

Regular price £185.00

Harry Huckleberry is a colourful and exotic, one of a kind, artist bear by Barbara-Ann Bears in luxurious mohair and upcycled Peruvian wool fabric

Harry Huckleberry stands 9 inches (23 cm) tall and is 7 inches (18 cm) sitting.

Harry Huckleberry is a wonderful, colourful teddy bear. His life started out rather differently, he was once a little Peruvian jacket, far too small for us to wear but perfect for making a bear (or two). So you could say that like Paddington Bear he comes from Peru, well that's what he's claiming, and like Paddington he has a constant need for marmalade sandwiches, fortunately he doesn't get up to quite as much mischief, no, not quite as much...

As explained above Harry Huckleberry is made from the most gorgeous stripy wool fabric, it's mainly purple with bands of blue and olive and amber, we have backed this with felt to make it stiffer and more durable, and much more difficult to work with. His face is a very, long and fluffy pale pink mohair and his tummy, the underside of his tail and the fronts of his ears are a fairly long distressed mohair dyed in subtle shades of green, blue and dusky pink. Harry has hand dyed velvet paw pads which go very well with his colouring.

Harry Huckleberry has beautiful hand painted glass eyes with hand painted eyelids, a wonderfully embroidered nose, sewn from individual threads to match his colouring, he has a rather reflective expression and a huge beaming smile. He is stuffed with plastic pellets and polyester stuffing to make him more poseable, a little heavier and more cuddly.

Harry Huckleberry is a very sweet and cuddly teddy bear, with beautiful eyes and a fabulous expression. And when your friends come round and say "oh, he's a lovely bear!", you can reply, "Oh, him? Yes, he's from darkest Peru darling"

We will enclose photos with Harry Huckleberry 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, Harry Huckleberry is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14
