This rare lilac mohair bear, Aster, is still in her bloom despite a broken wrist. She’s all original except for old replaced knitted pads. There’s some settlement of stuffing in her right arm and she has a patched repair to the side of her right foot, plus a small darn close by. Additionally, both ankle seams have been stitched.
Nevertheless, Aster is a lovely sturdy teddy, and all her joints are in good working order, but her tilt growler has packed up. Aster’s broken wrist doesn’t seem to bother her too much, and she’s quite happy to wear her pretty mittens to protect it. She also wears her cute voile dress with a ‘necklace’ of lilac and purple braids.
Although Aster’s fur has faded over time, her backing cloth is still a reasonably strong colour, so she looks more lilac than she actually is!
