Melba 1930s Merrythought bear has amber glass eyes, and a brown-embroidered nose and mouth. All her claws are intact, including her webbed ones. Melba’s felt pads are in very good condition, apart from one foot where there’s a few holes.
Stuffed completely with kapok, Melba’s joints work fine, but her squeaker has packed up. She’s kept virtually all of her luxurious curly mohair. It’s faded in some areas, but is still quite a peachy-apricot colour around her joints and at the back.
Complete with wishbone earbutton and embroidered footlabel, Melba is an adorable character. She’s wearing her wonderful handknitted cardi and vintage embroidered dress, accessorised with a cute hand-made felt bag.
