Shipping: £10 (UK Special Delivery)
Francesca has been created from a traditional old gold German sparse mohair. I have added definition to her face, paw/foot pads by airbrushing. Fully 5 way jointed with English boot button glass eyes. Filled with glass sand for added weight. Francesca stands 4" ~10.16cm.
Francesca is from my Edwardian collection, long nose, slender arms, & humped back. Francesca is wearing a hand sewn oversized A-line dress
Her style gives me the impression of bygone day teddy bears, perhaps a great grandparents teddy bear as a child? Francesca's accessories include a beautiful hand sewn A-line dress with grapes, green foliage & deep crimson flowers. This pattern is exquisite with so much detailing & reminds me of a William Morris design. Cream vintage lace around the bottom hem finishes off this dress beautifully. The dress has been aged with strawberries & champagne stain. Her scarf is deep grape, her circle vintage style pendant has the words 'love '. Francesca comes complete with a handmade wooden pull-along toy fox called Copper created by my husband at The Old Folly Bears workshop. I have varnished, hand painted & then distressed him. Copper's dimension are 1.5" x 2". The inspiration for this bear & fox came from a book I read as a child called The Fox & the Grapes 'Aesop's Fables!
