My compliment is Alfonso.

Author's reconstruction of the most famous historical teddy bear.
In 1908 a red teddy bear was presented to one of the princesses of the Russian Empire. Bear called Alfonso. already at home they sewed his clothes. Alfonso loved and did not leave. Bear with the princess suffered emigration. In our time, the princess’s daughter sold the bear.
This story does not leave indifferent. I could not help but respond. The most attractive image.
Perhaps one of the few old teddy bears, which has a real provenance. The most famous historical image of a teddy bear. The most unusual for me.

Let me introduce my author's reconstruction of the image of Alfonso.
The fabric was the same as the original - red mohair on the yellow basis of the factory Schulte.
Wood wool.
 Eyes glass, made in Germany.
Palms and heels - woolen felt.
Clothing: silk, button-bead aventurine.
Height: 4.3 inches.

My pattern. I designed the pattern considering the archive of photos of the original bear. I tried to keep all proportions. And I love the result. I hope you liked my Alfonso!

Bear for collection. For children's games, unfortunately not suitable.
If you have questions, feel free to ask them, I will answer with pleasure!)

Shipment by courier delivery. Delivery, approximately within 10-14 days.
Thanks for attention!
Regards, Anna!

P.S.: The photo session of this teddy bear took place in the courtyard of the temple of the Romanov family. When I began to photoguning, the bell rose.
It was unexpected. I could not resist and made a video. This video is posted on YouTube.
Enjoy watching:)

What a stunning bear this is! He's made in the classic style which is so appealing! A lovely style and mohair fur feels like on a traditional bear too. A lovely weight to him and his collar and scarf give him an aristocratic nature. An absolute delight to join my collection. I love his expression and his little growl. A treasure to treasure!!!

Precious Talisman is such a cute little bear! Very happy! Anna is very nice and I received Precious Talisman relatively quickly from Russia all the way to Colorado, USA.
