(1930) A Wishbone Mrs Merrythought £150 for both
2 gorgeous bears I have had them for many years now and they absolutely must remain together. Both are Merrythoughts - both are 14 inches tall and fully jointed - they date to the 1930's. Mr Merrythought has the button in his ear but the celluloid cover is missing - Mrs Merrythought has the button to her back with wishbone celluloid covering. Both have replaced felt pads but the original labels have been restitched to their feet. They have replacement glass eyes on wires. As you can see from the pictures both are pretty much threadbare but who cares when they have such beautiful outfits to wear. Mr is in his Sunday best and wears a pinback which read "Lettuce Marry". Mrs is in a divine yellow frock and her pinback sweetly reads "Yes Darling". They are truly adorable.
