Antique Vtg Lovely Long Mohair Alpha Farnell Bear 1930s "humphrey" For Sale
Humphrey is a lovely long mohair Alpha Farnell bear made in the 1930s. He has a few patchy spots but over all he has a good covering of his long fluffy mohair. His bare fabric is marked in parts. He has his original felt pads that have a few little repairs in places (see pic 11). He is missing his label but he has some long threads of cotton attached to his left foot pad where it would have been. His glass eyes are vintage replacements and they suit him very well. He measures 12 inches long, has a kapok stuffed body with a mixture of kapok and wood wool in his head. The kapok stuffing in his legs has settled but he still sits happily and poses nicely. The stitching joining the two sides of his left ear is coming away a little bit, but it is nothing serious (see pic 9). In all Humphrey is a wonderful bear who does have age wear but has stood the test of time rather well. He truly has the most gorgeous face. His head is set in such a way that at certain angles he gazes up at you, he is so charming.If you have any questions I am always happy to answer them. He will be sent by recorded delivery.
