Ervin by Frank Webster - 40cm

Frank Webster

Catalogue number: FW20ERVI

Ervin is a handsome, traditional style teddy bear made from slightly sparse pale honey blond mohair. Ervin features a 'centre seam' detail on his face inspired by the most interesting vintage examples of Steiff bears. At the turn of last century, every seventh bear that Steiff made had a seam down the centre of his face to make the most efficient use of the expensive mohair fabric at the time; making these bears particularly collectable. He has delightful two-tone eyes and his paws are made from thick wool felt with hand embroidered claw stitching and shaving. Frank has given him a beautifully stitched nose with a light waxing effect. Ervin is filled with polyester and some plastic pellets, which gives him a lovely weight and he wears a personalised pendant on a cord around his neck.

Ervin is a one-of-a-kind design and made especially for The Bear Garden.

Frank Webster has been making artist bears since 1988. His bear-making career was born out of repairing old bears in the antiques business. In 1992 he devoted himself fulltime to bear making. Frank has designed bears for a number of different companies and his bears are noted, not only for their quality,
but also for their warmth of character. This is borne from his belief that bears were traditionally made to be a lifelong friend rather than purely a collector’s item.
