Elmer is a gorgeous traditional teddy bear made from thick wavy bright gold mohair which has been expertly trimmed around his nose and feet to show the pattern of the mohair in the backing fabric. He has delightful black boot button style eyes. His paws are made from thick wool felt and Frank has given him a beautifully stitched nose with a light waxing effect. Elmer is filled with polyester and some plastic pellets, which gives him a nice weight and tactile feel.
This bear is a one-of-a-kind design and made specially 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.
