A new Old Timer!

16" Silas

It's been a while since I worked with vintage mohair, so this week I decided to put my last few pieces to good use to create a bear in 'Old Timer' style. 'Silas' is slumpy, a little care worn and a delight to hold! Do you remember Cornelius? Well, little brother Silas is created from that same wonderful burnt orange and rich burgundy vintage mohair, full to bursting with authentic character and sense of history. I do hope you like him, he's a striking fellow!

06/07/09 update: Silas has now found his new owner and will be living in the US very soon!


  1. I think his slumpyness is very endearing Paula, gorgeous

  2. He is wonderful Paula. Love That old look and the color too.

  3. Hi Paula,
    Silas is adorable! Love the colors, love the slump!
    Just wonderful!

  4. Thank you all! I like his slumpy too! He's a very heavy little fellow and the colour of his mohair, given its age, is amazingly vibrant still!
    I'm delighted to say he found a new owner straightaway!

  5. He really does look quite a different sort of bear - gorgeous colour too !
    If you pop over to my blog Paula you'll see I'm really honoured to pass a special award to you - no strings at all - my pleasure to say "thank you" for all you do !
    Huggies , Ruth
