Oh.... I do like to be beside the seaside!

Marco is off to the beach this weekend ready for a dip in the very brave he is!
Marco is our latest 9" Teddy Bear design made from quality German mohair that I have tinted and aged to give the appearance of a very old bear.
He has a wobble neck joint and centre head seam ,antique boot button eyes with spoon shaped arms and hump back.Stuffed with wood wool and weighted with steel shot.
Marco is wearing a vintage fine wool bathing costume in dark navy and cream trimmed with old pearl buttons and vintage metal anchor.
His outfit can be removed and wrung out to dry after swimming!
Limited Edition . ADOPTED.
