Petz (1930) Portia
’Portia’ a German teddy bear 1930s, with golden mohair, clear and black glass eyes, pronounced muzzle, black stitched nose, mouth and claws, swivel head, jointed limbs with replaced cloth pads, inoperative growler and white cotton dress —20in. (51cm.) high (slight wear and thinning); and a recent painting by Alix Boyd of Portia, framed and glazed
The framed painting is dated and signed 'Alix Boyd' and the frame measures 19" x 16". Another painting of a 1930's Chad Valley bear by the same artist is known which was dated 1972 so one would assume that this picture is also from the early 1970's. Both the frame and picture are in good condition.
