Zizi is a beautiful teddy bear made from soft sparse warm cream mohair. She has delightful two tone amber glass eyes. Her paws are made from thick wool felt and Frank has given her a beautifully stitched nose with a light waxing effect and stitched claws. Zizi is filled with polyester and some plastic pellets, which gives her a nice weight and feel. She wears a lilac ribbon and white lace shawl around her shoulders, a matching posy of ribbon rosebuds on her head and her name medallion around her neck.
Zizi 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,
