Early German bear Alissa, has original features including shoe-button eyes, and felt pads that are all worn with some holes and patched repairs. Only a couple of threads remain of her nose stitching, and her mouth is long gone. Her long pointy muzzle has a few stitched repairs, and there’s also a small darned repair to the back of her head.
Alissa’s wood-wool stuffing has more or less disintegrated in the top of her torso, making her endearingly floppy. Her joints all work fine, despite some internal buckling of the carded discs.
Overall, Alissa is a lovely strong ted. Although she has some loss of fur, especially to one side of the back of her head, her dark gold mohair is plentiful, and velvety soft.
This engaging character is wearing a handmade dress and floppy hat, with a little home-made bag to hold her handkerchief.
