Captain Pierre is a breath taking pirate teddy bear, crafted with exceptional attention to detail from the finest blond mohair. He wears a bespoke navy blue linen jacket with scarlet red braiding and cuffs which is perfectly finished with mother of pearl buttons and a lace neckerchief. His striped cotton linen trousers are accessorised with a handmade leather belt and rusted belt buckle. Upon his head sits a hand made black wool felt Captain's hat with a red, white and blue ribbon cocade embellishment. Beneath his hat, Captain Pierre wears an opulent antique gold taffeta silk headscarf which is finished with a single gold hoop earring. He has a lightly waxed black embroidered nose and striking black boot button eyes. Captain Pierre also boasts subtle shaving and airbrushing.
Captain Pierre is an exquisite one-of-a-kind teddy bear made especially for The Bear Garden.
