It has never been played with, it is from the artist's collection. A pair of teddy bears made by hand, created by Cathy Peterson. These two don't really have names, they are just my two ballerina bears.
I made these for myself, and made the chair and pillows as well. I made the chair from branches from the tall bushes in my yard. Such regal bears deserve a fancy place to sit. The green and pink cushions are made from a vintage scarf, and antique ribbon. I made them especially for this chair.
The chair and cushions are not marked, but I made them. The chaise is delicate, and one of a kind. Here is a view of the chair.
As you can see the chair suits these two bears perfectly. Is so sweet and unique. She stands 2 3/4 inches tall.She is made from pale blue vintage thin fabric, not sure I think it was taffeta or acetate. She is all hand stitched, her paw pads are cream colored, of the same type of fabric. The nose and claws are wonderful black French floss. And her eyes are tiny glass shoe button eyes. She has a paper stitched on tag that has both the printed company logo and my signature. Although, she was made many years ago, she is in like new condition, always kept in my display cabinet... Which is where she is now, waiting for a new home. She a little tutu made of ribbon, glass beads and silk flower petals.
You simply put her arms up and pull it over her head. She is all jointed, head, arms and legs all move and are pose-able. She is so small, it's hard to get a really good photo, but she is finely detailed. Her companion is a larger creamy-white bear. Standing a stout and chubby 5 inches tall.
She is made from a tight weave wool fabric, reclaimed from a vintage coat. You can see the grain of the weave, but it is slightly fuzzy. A creamy white, almost almond color, it has natural flecks of undyed wool, that gives her a very warm tone. Her outfit, which is completely removable, is made of vintage organdy, and French 2 tone ribbon, the ribbon has wire in it, so it holds a bow.The flowers in her hand and the bow on her head are simply pinned on with a ball-head straight pin. She has little plastic elf shoes, I salvaged from an old toy. She has a paper RBC logo tag, stitched on and is signed and dated, 1994. She is all jointed, and has French floss claws and nose, and has glass shoe button eyes. The other thing I love about making and having bears is the fact that they decorate my life and my home. These bears were never made for resale, I made them for my own collection, because I love bears. Cathy Peterson, teddy bear artist.
