Polar Bears in Boldon

Our favourite lot from the Antique and Interiors Sale on the 5th February was this Deans white mohair mother Polar bear sitting on her hind legs, having orange glass eyes, stitched mouth and cloth nose, holding her Polar bear cub, with Deans Rag Book label to the bottom of mother bear and label to neck of cub.  Mother 42cm high, Cub 18cm high.  Produced to commemorate the birth of the first polar bear at London Zoo in 1949.  Sold for £75, they went off to a new home to be looked after for future generations.
