Deans Rag Book Co John Bull Limited Edition Bear

Our Price: *99.00


His image has been around since 1712, a satirical character representative of the UK. He is our answer to America's Uncle Sam, a heroic archetype. He is the waistcoat wearing John Bull, courtesy of the British teddy bear maker, Deans Rag Book Co.

John Bull is diminutive, for such a larger than life character. A double-cupped hand sized 20 cm / 7.8" fully jointed teddy bear. He has been sewn from a luxuriously dense and shaggy mid-pile, golden mohair and warm wool felt paws, with his right featuring the iconic logo badge. His endearing, glossy eyes and detailed, hand stitched chestnut nose bring great appeal, whilst his outfit, although smart is no longer typical of the British public, but like America, a sign of patriotism. He wears a black wool felt top hat, light cotton trousers and a black tailed coat with a colourful union jack waistcoat topped with a bow tie.

He comes boxed with his Limited Edition, numbered certificate of authenticity.
