ARTIST MADE DEB CANHAM BEAR – MOHAIR – 10″ HEIGHT
This is a beautiful artist made mohair bear by a world reknowned artist by the name of Deborah Canham. Her bears were very expensive and I believe she still makes them.
This one would be from the 1990’s and her name is “B.J” according to her tag and she is Limited Edition #273 of 5000 made.
She has lovely long fur with contrasting suede paw pads. She has black shoe button type eyes with an embroidered nose and mouth. She is fully jointed.
I do not know if her outfit is original or not or if she came without one as many of her bears were not dressed. This one wears a cute calico frock trimmed with lace but it does need to be soaked as in aged condition. She also has a lace ribbon in her hair.
She is a collectors item and not designed for children. She retains her original cardboard swing tag with the details.
This is a really gorgeous bear and displays beautifully.
