Ralph - 13" hand-dyed double thick mohair Artist Bear by Emma's Bears - Limited Edition
**Please note that this listing is only for the larger 'Ralph' bear. The smaller 'Ralph Jnr' can be found in his own listing ***
By Emma and Mark Nicholson
This gorgeously odd little fellow is 'Ralph'. He is part of a slightly strange limited edition collection of six bears, created in three different pairs with different coloured eyes and accessories. This listing is for the larger bear with the black eyes and grey collar.
All six bears in this limited edition are cut from three hand-dyed Schulte double thick mohair colours: a barely-there pink, a porcelain cream and a mushroom beige. Each bear features all three of the colours positioned differently across their body/limbs. The colouring of this hand-dyed mohair is so similar that the differences are very subtle - but is a little easier to see in person.
Ralph and Ralph Jnr both look out through big innocent black glass eyes. The eyes have a subtle border of white, and their faces, hands, feet and ears have been extensively shaded with silk-dye. They're fully and securely T-pin jointed, but we've left the limb joints a little looser then usual (the head joint is quite firm though). They're stuffed with polyfill, glass beads and enclosed steel shot in their bellies. They feature hand embroidered scruffy two-tone noses, and hand embroidered claws.
Ralph and Ralph Jnr wear handmade cotton print ruffle collars around their necks. Ralph is 13" tall, while Ralph Jnr is 11" tall. Technically this makes them one of a kind within a series. They look adorable sitting together as a pair, and with their other 'siblings'.
