Bears of Yesteryear

Each of these fabulous creations from the 'Bears of Yesteryear' will evoke memories of the twenties and thirties. Heather makes several different styles in this collection - the elderly Aunts and the display bears, each sitting in a beautiful case surrounded with matching accessories.

Each elderly 'Aunt' is fully dressed with a collection of new and antique accessories. Of course they also have beautiful underwear so you needn't worry about them being seen out in public! They carry a fully stocked handbag with all the necessities an elderly lady would carry - handkerchief, keys, hair pins and more along with a few surprises! Each bear is complemented with a portfolio with photo and information about the bear and Heather.

The display bears are surrounded with both new and antique accessories to evoke memories of a by-gone era. They will make a beautiful display piece in your home will be much admired.
