Little handmade mohair bears from Hertford

Brown Burr Bear in Blue and Brown jumper

One little brown Burr bear for sale – this bear is looking for a loving home.

He is handmade from mohair and is fully jointed.  He sports a little blue raw-edge scarf made from vintage silk and a hand knitted jumper.

He is 21cm tall but, like all small bears, infinitely prefers sitting down.

He is an old sea-dog of a bear who has travelled one or two of the seven seas, enjoying rapid demotion in the ranks. Now retired, he really needs taking in hand. At the moment his hobbies are: petitioning government ministers for more flexible interpretations of time-zones to better suit his television-viewing schedule and designing a contemporary range of waterproof clothing for historic ship figureheads.

This little fellow is available from Hertford Town & Tourist Information Office and costs £80.  If you would like to purchase him, please email Tina/Helena in the office on or telephone them on 01992 584322

What’s not included in the price? All the props. If they’re at all edible, they’ll have been eaten. Otherwise they’ll be recycled.
