"thomas" - - Beautiful Big Old Bear. Antique 1930's Peacock?chad Valley? Bear:
Thomas is one of those bears who stands out in a crowd - a very imposing old character. He is 22 inches tall and probably dates to the 1920's/early 1930's. He was purchased from a recognized dealer who thought he could possibly be an early Peacock bear or a Chad Valley - they took over the company and continued the Peacock design. He is completely woodwool stuffed so quite heavy - some of the stuffing has shifted giving him a more slumpy appearance which I think adds to his appeal. He has some mohair remaining and has replaced old linen pads. As you can see he has some patched repairs and has been given replacement eyes and there is some thinning to his fabric but he is still a strong old boy - as with all old bears he requires a loving touch. He will come wearing his very old romper which he has worn for many a moon and is a truly special old boy. Please note : if you have response of less than 10 please cancel me prior to offerding to reassure me you are serious - apologies but I have been let down by so many new ers. Payment needs to be made within 3 days. Postal costs are estimated and based on weight - he is large and heavy - but should they be less i will happily refund the difference. GOOD LUCK XXXXXXXXXXXXX
