Jubilee Bear - June 2012

I have rarely ever made any  commemorative bears but this year seems to have resulted in two being planned.  I have made a Bear to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen.   This is sneaky preview of the prototype, the bear will be available from Silly Bears with the first deliveries to coincide with the June holiday week-end.  He is 18 inches tall and designed to sit or free stand equally comfortably, made from 2 shades of straight mohair with pure white paw pads, blue glass eyes set on white felt and my signature set, shaded and polished nose embroidery.
I understand that the first bear will be in the shop to see from May 2nd and will be available from June 2nd, for more information and to register your interest please contact Silly Bears, email address:-


  1. That is funny that the bear is for the jubilee.
    As soon as I saw your bear I thought she had a regal look.

    2. Thank you, I don't usually make editions but this is a very special event and one which appeals, I was born in the 50's so definitely feel I am of the "Elizabethan" era :-)

  2. Me too. She has a very regal tilt to the head. Beautiful bear, beautiful soft color.

  3. This is really a wonderful teddy bear and a very special one, too. The colours fit so well. Compliments, great work Gregory! Beary hugs, Iris.
