This exquisite Cheeky bear has been created in celebration of Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee in 2022, which marks 70 years of her reign. As the first British monarch in history to achieve this accolade, this beautiful bear is hand crafted from custom made platinum tipped mohair as a nod to this momentous occasion. A unique design first created by Merrythought in the 1950's, the Cheeky bear is world renowned for a cheerful smile and large ears with jingle bells in. She has bright blue eyes and a hand embroidered platinum thread nose. She is resplendent in her pure cotton velvet replica Imperial coronation robe which is lined with the finest satin, edged with winter white faux fur and intricately embroidered with golden thread. Just like the original robe, it is beautifully finished with two satin bows and luxury Italian tassels. This extraordinary bear wears an impressive silver-plated replica of the Imperial state crown that Her Majesty wore as she left Westminster Abbey during her coronation. Her feet are made from pure cotton velvet with a crown and the dates of Her Majesty's coronation, 1952, and Platinum Jubilee, 2022, embroidered on her foot pad in striking golden thread.

She is part of a limited edition of just 1,952 pieces and she is presented in a premium gold drum gift box with her individually numbered certificate.
