When bears were our very best friends...........................
I am very pleased to introduce you all to
Dear Little Cyril
I have always had a true passion for designing and creating much loved bears as I believe that they are the essence of what teddy bears are all about, warm memories and a special security.
This is Cyril and he is one of my much loved bears that looks as though he has just finished helping make mud pies at the bottom of the garden. I hope that you like him as he is rather special :0)
Cyril weighs in at a rather respectable 760 grams and measures 14 inches high from his paws to his ears and sits at 9 inches.
Cyril really is a very special and endearing bear being one of my older style bears.
I decided to create a much smaller range of one of a kind bears to remind us of our own childhood bears who if you were anything like me went absolutely everywhere with us including down to the bottom of the garden to help make mud pies along with the occassional picnic :0)
Cyril has lovely large black English vintage glass eyes which I feel is very important in keeping with traditional bears.
His nose and mouth have been hand embroidered in vintage black silks.
I have lovingly created and hand crafted Cyril from a lovely sparse German mohair of which I have extensively colourwashed to a beautiful warm chocolate and then carefully tipped in small areas emulating a bear that has been played with in the garden :0)
His paws and pads are created from a nice soft vintage chocolate leather replicating pads that you expect to find on very old bears.
He is traditionally five way jointed.
Cyril is perfectly stuffed and heavily weighted with steel shot enhancing his rotund little tummy and his traditional hump.
He has a very old traditional style head giving him a nice distinctive long snout.
He has long old fashioned hockey stick arms which are weighted enabling him to hug you when he is picked up.
Everything I designed and created with Cyril is in keeping with very old traditional hugs from a time long since passed.
This really charming old time bear has taken many hours of careful designing and hand crafting capturing the essence of a time when bears were an extremely important part of the family and our very best friends.
He would make the perfect addition to your collection and would be a great choice for either Antique or Artist Bear collectors.
Cyril comes complete with his sewn in tag, swing tag and his certificate of authenticity signed by myself.
As with all of my bears he is a collectors item and is therefore unsuitable for very young children.

Thank you for taking the time to view him I know that he really appreciates your time :0)
Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have it is always nice to hear from you
Warmest regards to you all
