Approved pre-owned Bears

I have a number of  bears which I have agreed to re-home on behalf of a long standing customer.  They are from a very large collection and have all been kept in specially made cabinets since new.  I am not sure about taking this on but when the box arrived I was intrigued to see some old friends, and as this person was so keen he very often got to my table first and picked out some interesting bears.  Including 2 very small ones which I have rarely made.

Full details are on my website but I thought I would just post some pictures here.
I wasn't sure how to describe these bears, re-homes, orphans or the like, or even approved used, approved pre-owned.  However they are described leads to the same conclusion, the owner wanted to sell them and seemed unable to organise doing so through the usual internet facilities, I didnt really want to get involved but on reflection I thought perhaps some of my current mailing list collectors might be pleased to have a chance to see them.

The earliest is from 1999 and they are not in my current style and proportion but very much representative of  my style from that era, I particularly like the very stocky caricature grizzly bear.

Being re-homes I find it quite difficult to price them compared with new bears and as such I will be prepared to  consider offers depending on the response, they are all different of course and some very unusual.  Yes, I will be keeping a commission sum for myself from the sale which helps me as well as giving some much needed assistance to the former owner.
