Regular price £195.00

Wilbur is quite a large, sweet and cuddly, traditional one of a kind, artist teddy bear made in splendid English mohair by Barbara Ann Bears

Wilbur is 18 inches (46cm) tall and is 13 inches (33cm) sitting.

Wilbur is a wonderful traditional teddy bear, he's probably the most traditional teddy that we've ever made in his form and colouring. We were very lucky that an old friend who is nearing retirement from teddy bear making offered us first refusal on some beautiful old English mohair. Mohair for the teddy bear industry hasn't been woven in this country for a long time so we feel especially fortunate and honoured to be able to make a one or two bears with it. We think Wilbur has turned out very well, he's obviously a bear who likes his honey...and his cakes, his biscuits and scones, and... well, let's just say that he's a very 'solid' bear.

Wilbur is made from a beautiful antique gold, straight pile, dense English mohair. He has soft brown, Alcantara (faux suede) paw pads and large beguiling eyes, these were painted in a very a subtle manner with colours to match his mohair. Wilbur has a splendid, carefully embroidered brown nose and a relaxed and demure expression.

Wilbur is stuffed with a mixture of polyester stuffing and plastic pellets, giving him a cuddly and relaxed demeanour, comfortable and easy to pose and hug. As with all our bears he is 5-way jointed.

Wilbur is a charming and very friendly bear, he's definitely a bear who loves his food and seems to be constantly prepared for hibernation, even in the middle of summer! He's a wonderful, cuddly chap, we hope you like him.

We'll pop in some photos with Wilbur 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, Wilbur is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14.
