Black Beauty as a Foal, is a good example of the excellent craftsmanship that was produced from the artists at the Beswick pottery in England.

Elephant Figurines

Magnificent Elephant Figurines to add to your collection.

Once again, I have taken some time to search out some of the best Elephant Figurines pieces available for sale in Australia right now.

The Elephant is a symbol of power and strength, and will be a good addition to your collection. The biggest problem to overcome is which one will you settle on. OR Will you have to get two or more Elephant Figurines and make your own herd with the biggest Elephant being the matriarch to which the others follow. If you have too many in your collection you will have to separate them into smaller herds so to speak.

Most fake bears on the market have an appearance that looks suspiciously fresh as well as untouched. Their  noses are generally showing no signs of wear, and the seams can often be thick plus uneven so keep an eye open for this.

The Best Teddies Possess the Following.

Almost all the Best bears possess jointed hips and necks, as well as their shoulder joints.

Early specimens possess a typical “American football” shape and they are generally made from short, gold or sometimes beige mohair plush together with complementing felt paws, and also distinctive sharply pointed foot pads. They also have shoe-button or sometimes have glass eyes, plus the fur surrounding the muzzle is probably shorn also. Later on many types of bears were created in a a large range of colours and form to symbolize various species of the bear, for example, polar bears along with grizzly bears, and also pandas are included in this range.

A Handy Hint to Identifying your Vintage Teddy Bears.

Examine the actual label. Regardless of whether the majority of the label on the teddy bear has worn away.

You are still able to match it up with what is remaining on the tag, and compare it with pre-existing photographs in books, so that you can identify the particular bear in your possession.
