Chuck (13″) tall c.1940s
Chuck is an original flat-faced Chiltern Hugmee, stuffed with kapok (head woodwool). He has amber glass eyes and a black-embroidered nose and mouth.
Although the rexine coating has worn off his pads, they’re in good condition – complete with inky markings made by his child owner! There’s an underlined letter B on his left paw, while his left foot spells out BEAR. We can’t quite read the other two pads.
Despite his obvious baldness in some areas, Chuck still has plenty of gold mohair and all his joints work fine. He also has a lovely little smile. His old brooch says ‘Walsee’, and has a little bell attached. Price: 55 GBP
Chas (14″) tall c.1930s/40s
Chas is also kapok-stuffed, with woodwool in his head. He has original amber glass, and a black-embroidered nose and mouth. (We’re not sure if his nose is actually original). But his cotton twill pads are, and they’re in minty condition, with a full set of claws.
There’s some patchy baldness here and there, but Chas still has plenty of bright gold mohair, and all his joints are in good order. He’s a handsome character, wearing his jumper pinned with an old imperial royal badge. Price: 68 GBP.
