"George" with Provenance

Dear old George is a fabulous cinnamon Chad Valley bear dating to the 1930s. He comes with a letter of provenance (explaining he is a Londoner) and a small original photograph of himself with the original owner. George must truly have been loved in his day and belonged to a young girl named Shirley. George then passed to her sister, Mary whose grandmother made his grey suit. There are photos of George with button eyes and these have subsequently been replaced with glass eyes that are more like the originals would have been. However, the button eyes are in his little box together with some photos taken around 15 years ago when Mary rehomed him. George's button is still in his ear but the celluloid covering is gone so it is just blank these days. The rare cinnamon mohair is rather worn and there are some old repairs. The pads have been replaced and the Chad Valley label resewn on the top. George is a gentle soul who measures just over 16" tall - please enquire for more details
