I know this might be a hard request, but does anyone know who's bears are in the 9th photo? I am particularly interested in the red bear sitting on the right side of the photo.
All the bears are so wonderful, and I want to also thank Jane for posting the pictures. I am in Canada and will probly never get to a Hugglets show in my lifetime. It must be so great to see sooooo much talent in one place!!!!!
As a collector I prefer undressed bears, however I love a little ruffle, scarf, etc...
I only have 1 bear with a little jacket, but it was so beautifully made and suited the bear so much I love it on him.
I agree the mohair, shape of the bear and workmanship are so much more to me.
I was a very lucky guy and received these wonderful bears for Christmas.
The large clown bear is Clarence by Selwyn Bears by Fiona Selwyn.
The blue/brown is Scruffy by GilmurrudleyBears of Jacquelyn Melerski.
The other wonderful clown is Huey by Ann-Marie Dodd of Bearmetoo.
And the lovely yellow bear is un named so far, but is by Shane Elliott from the Bear Guys.
I hope everyone else had a wonderful Christmas too!!
I know what you mean, I received an amazing bear from Russia after waiting over 2 mons and worrying if it was ever going to make it in the mail. When it arrived the bear was wonderful, but there was no presentation, in plastic with no label, hangtag, nothing. It is like the artist doesn't care.
However when I have received bears beautifully wrapped and the care shows through it makes the whole experience so much better.
For me as a collector, the anticipation of receiving the bear means almost as much as the bear itself....well maybe not that much, lol
Of course this is only my opinion.
