ARTIST MADE BEAR BY OMI – “BERTIE” – 15″ LENGTH
This is a fabulous artist made bear by the name of “Bertie” and would have been an expensive bear when purchased new.
Bertie was made by an Australian Bear Artist who went under the label of “Omi” and I believe still makes bears to this day.
Bertie measures approximately 15″ in length and has been made from vintage wool-mohair-alpaca blend with glass eyes. The pattern for Bertie was from a 1910 Steiff pattern and as you can see in the photo he has a lovely hump on his back.
Bertie is fully jointed and has an embroidered black nose and mouth and brown corduroy paw pads. His ribbon around his neck is original and he retains his original wooden “Omi” heart tag as well as his information.
Bertie is a beautiful collectors bear or to give to someone special.
