A vintage little Nisbet Bully Minor bear, with sideseam label signed by Peter Bull. Measuring just 23 cms (9″) tall, baby Bully is a limited edition of 5000 made worldwide, but his number is missing from his label.
Bully is all original with lock-in safety eyes and a beige stitched nose, mouth and claws. He’s soft stuffed and fully-jointed, though his limbs are quite stiff.
Bully has tan velvet pads and is in overall good condition, though there’s some baldness to his head and an arm, and his gold mohair has mostly faded to blonde.
He’s nevertheless a very sweet character, wearing his knitted dungarees with ladybird buttons, and a straw hat.
I find my hat very useful – because in the past, before I acquired it, the sun bleached some of the colour from my fur. So a warning to all teddies who find themselves sat near a window – get yourselves a big hat!
