ARTHUR 1/1 - WINNER - NATIONAL TEDDY BEAR ARTIST AWARDS 2011 NATURALISTIC BEARS ALSO BEST IN SHOW
Arthur is just superb! Hes made using superb, high quality, very dense, long pile honey coloured Tissafel plush. His muzzle, inner ears and eyebrows are made from contrasting 18mm dense mohair and this has subtle airbrushed shading. His naturally shaped, extremely detailed nose is embroidered using dark brown thread, which has then been shaded with fabric paints and his lower jaw has been designed to produce the gently grumpy expression of an older bear. Arthur has black glass eyes set in eyelids and his 3D pads on beige ultrasuede have needle sculpted divisions for extra definition; his limbs and body are stuffed with a combination of wood wool and polyester and his body contains 2 growlers so that he speaks whichever way you put him down! He has a total of 8 joints, 2 for his asymmetric neck, 1 in each wrist and 1 at the top of each limb so he looks good in a variety of different positions. Arthur also comes with 2 certificates, 2 rosettes and 2 commemorative plates (see final photo)
