Here she is... Hortense - a black bear - a bit of a bruiser, with gorgeous, windswept, longpile mohair. She measures about 17 inches from ears to toes, and 12.5 inches in her natural sitting position.

Oh she is lovely! I like the windswept look - so you were 'lucky' with the weather too?! She looks very secure-bottomed too - a good thing when it's breezy!

Thankyou! I was sort of lucky with the weather - no rain, but it was extremely cold! And yes, she is rather broad in the seat ("Don't put your daughter on the stage, Mrs Worthington...!").

Happy Birthday for yesterday by the way! Did they bring the bear out at the correct moment? And did you receive the parcel I sent?
