Barty is fully jointed, and has amber glass eyes. His black nose stitching has lost a couple of threads, but all his claws are intact and his felt pads are in very good condition. There’s a voice box in his tummy but it no longer works.
Mosty kapok-stuffed, with some woodwool in his head and muzzle, this has settled a little in Barty’s arms and right leg. Otherwise, he’s in fantastic condition, having kept virtually all of his curly gold mohair.
This sweet-faced bear also retains his blue and white embroidered label sewn to his left foot. This was used by Farnell from c.1925-45, then replaced with a red, white and blue printed label.
Barty is wearing his vintage shirt collar tied with hand-dyed ribbons.
