An engaging white mohair German ted made by Clemens c.1940s, measuring 51 cms (20″) tall. Treff is stuffed with woodwool, and has a squidgy shaved muzzle, of gold short bristle mohair.
His amber glass eyes are original, along with his nose stitching and, although he’s lost his mouth, he seems to be smiling. Treff’s pads are old brushed fabric replacements, and he’s fully-jointed. Limbs are quite swingy, but secure.
Treff has a good covering of fur – his backing cloth is a pinky-beige which has tended to make his mohair take on a pinkish hue in his pics.
Overall, he’s a lovely sturdy bear, dressed in his frog-themed outfit, including wacky scarf sewn with a manic homemade felt froggy!
I’m a big fan of frogs, and currently enjoying re-reading my all-time favourite novel, The Wind in the Willows.
As you might guess, my most favourite character is Mr Toad, who lives at Toad Hall.
I wish I could go and pay him a visit!
