  ~   Description   ~  

Name:  Tapestry Bear, from my own collection,  by artist C. Peterson

Size  32 inches tall.

Date Created  1987.   One of a kind.  Early bear,

                             Hand Made in the USA ~ One-of-a-Kind ~ OOAK.

About A lovely unique bear made from tapestry fabric with wool paw pads.  Wearing a satin circus ruffle and green bow, now a bit faded. Leather nose and wool yarn details.  He is cotton rag stuffed, so he's a heavy bear, made the old fashioned way.  This is a very early bear, from the artist's collection is an early Roosevelt Bear made by Cathy Peterson.  He was a show stopper, brought along to catch bear lover's attention.  He is a really big bear standing just under 32 inches tall.  His eyes are crystalline / plastic, a rare thing, as they were only used for a short time. The bear has been sitting in the my living room since I photographed him, in the French chair seen below.  He is quite delightful and truly charming.  A special tag has been added, that notes he is from the artist collection.  A new hang tag will be added when he is adopted by you.  A wonderful, very sturdy teddy bear.  All jointed.

He is a little dusty from hanging around being a bear, but otherwise he is in very good condition, please see all the photos. 

Extra Details:  
-- This item, although expertly constructed is not a toy.  Intended as a collector item. 
-- This item is stored in my bear cabinet so that I can enjoy it till you decide to may it yours.
-- Notable elements of Roosevelt Bear Company Bears:  Hand sewn in tag, and hang tags, 
    professionally handmade. 

Artist Notes about the work 

I'm back at my sewing box, creating new bears for the first time in a long while, nearly 20 years. When I stopped making teddy bears commercially in the early 1990s, I simply stopped, with hundreds of bears in various stages of finishing.  I have unearthed over 200 bears from my storage barn, and have picked up where I left off.  It is a joy to be back creating bears, and now to make them available to you.

I'm charmed and enchanted by teddy bears, they are forever unique to themselves, perhaps the very reason that collecting them is so enjoyable. I think you'll love this bear. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I have making it. CP.

Free Gift:  When you order any Roosevelt Bear Co. creation you'll receive 2 archival catalogs
                 showing that shows early commercial editions.  The Roosevelt Bear Co. in it's
                 hay day was represented in over 200 stores world wide. 

**Attention toy companies / bear makers: Design licensing available. Email if interested.

Small Parts Warning:  Although all Roosevelt Bears Co. creations are well made, they are not recommended for small children.  They are designed and created as collector items. Care should be taken when sharing or showing to children under the age of 5 years old. Any toy with small parts could be a choking hazard.  Thank you for your attention to this issue.  Max Rainet.

 -- Cathy Peterson is a creative artist from Ventura California, working in all mediums, and considers herself a student of art. Sewing was an early interest, and culminated in a 3 year job working as an upholsters assistant, learning to make and sew complicated patterns, in a variety of materials.  Formal training at Westmont College in print making, graphic arts and sculpture. Her work is defined by exploration and new ideas. "I really like watching how my creations turn out. An idea will sit somewhere in my head for a month or so, I'll do sketches as I formulate how to construct it, then I'll make it.  If it turns out good, I'll make more."

Our Choices in Charitable Giving:

We have started adding  10% charitable donations to various charities to my Ebay store listings and live auction listings.  This is an explanation of our choices in making giving a part of the our Ebay experience.

First United Methodist Church, Ventura, CA-  is where my grand-niece attends preschool.  They're a wonderfully kind group who look after little ones very well.  My little niece started there when she was 2 years old and now is nearly 4.  The preschool is called Happy Ventures.  It truly is a happy place for little ones to grow and learn. 

Dirty Dog Squad is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abandoned and neglected pets. We are an all volunteer, grass-roots organization based in Venice, CA. Environment and Protection of Animals Marina del Rey CA.   I have always had a soft spot for dogs.  They are the best friends ever and in our home have become part of the family. 

For this reason I also support Boston Buddies.  Which rescues Boston Terriers all over Southern California.  We adopted 2 of their rescue dogs in 2011.  They're absolutely a delight. 

Boston Buddies Inc. Is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting any Boston Terrier in need in the Southern California area. The Corporation will accept Boston Terriers from animal shelters, backyard breeders, strays and private individuals who must surrender their pet, with the intention of placing these animals in appropriate loving homes after interviews with the potential adopters and home checks have been made. Environment and Protection of Animals Huntington Beach CA.

Breast Cancer and other Cancer related charities.  Cancer has a prevalence in our family.  Any sort of research that supports a cure, or teaches patients how to manager their disease is near and dear to us.   We look for centers here in California and have supported the John Wayne Cancer Foundation

We also follow Joel Osteen of Lakewood Church in Houston Texas. As a lifelong Christian, I feel his is one of the best messages of hope, whether you believe or not.  The power of positive thoughts are valid in any faith.  May God bless us all. 

Blessings to you, Max Rainet.
