Basil Harley - 22in MOHAIR Artist toddler style Bear by Emmas Bears - OOAK
By Emma and Mark Nicholson
4 lb, 1oz
This stunning big bear is one of our older-style 'Toddler' bears (bears that can be dressed in standard baby clothing so you can shop for their outfits yourself. The Toddler range don't have the heavy heads of the baby-version of this design, so they can be displayed sitting upright).
Basil Harley is made from a gorgeously unusual mix of curlylocks mohair in a factory-dyed light gold on a dark backing, paired with a stunning antique-gold hand-dyed colour (this was an experimental colour, so very unlikely we'll achieve something exactly the same again). We've photographed Basil in a variety of settings to try and show his unusual colouring as accurately as possible. Basil's nose is hand embroidered in a matching antique gold DMC perle cotton and his eyes are black glass with faux suede whites.
Basil Harley is fully T-pin jointed and stuffed very well with polyfill, glass and steel shot weighting -he is a very weighty boy. His feet have hand-pulled and shaded toe detailing with tufts of lighter coloured mohair, and he features some shading to his face as well.
Basil looks great displayed just sitting with his stunning curly mohair on show, but also comes with his gorgeous newborn sized plush hooded onesie (brand new with tags and we've shortened the legs to allow his chunky big bear feet to fit through! This outfit is fully removable. His little golden friend has been handmade by my very talented aunt. We made his cute little bow-tie using the left over fabric from Basil's altered onesie outfit, so it's a perfect match!
Basil Harley is a gorgeous one of a kind artist bear.
