(1919) Wee Willie

Wee Willie is a a rare Teddy Bear, made in England after the 1st World War, when many small makers started making bears following the lack of German imports. Very interesting with cloth body, mohair head, hands and feet. Designed to wear clothes, he comes with a jacket, but not original. He probably had fairly cheap cotton and felt clothes, similar to Chiltern's Master Teddy. Original clear and black glass eyes, black stitched nose and unusual double and triple stitched mouth. Good quality felt pads. All joints need attention, one has come off. Once in the hands of a skilled restorer, you could bring him back to life. 12in. (30.5cm.) high
