Cuddle up to the magic of Yesterday's Bears
Much like you might find a long forgotten treasure in Grandma's attic,
You can now discover and enjoy a new generation
Of teddy bears filled with old fashioned charm.
The talent of Lenore DeMent, well known among bear lovers and collectors
for many years, brings you "Theodora"
the very first issue in the Yesterday's Bears Collection.
This handcrafted,hand stitched collectible bear
Has been designed exclusively for Gallery Teddy Bears and for you !
If you've ever had the opportunity to see one of the original teddy bears
crafted near the turn of the century, you know that they were
beautifully designed and carefully handcrafted.
The fur was dense and deep, the body jointed, the nose and mouth
handstitched so that no two were ever alike.
In tribute to these rare and wonderful works of art,
Lenore DeMent created "Theodora"
to recapture the experience of owning one of these rare old teddies.
You'll find her jointed in five places and created from our own exclusive fur
that duplicates the look and feel of well worn mohair. In fact you'll even find places
where it appears that some of her fur has been "loved" right off!
