Hardy Bear - Sophie - 034
Hardy Bears. Collector's Teddy Bear. Handmade by June Kendall.
June started making 'Artist Bears’ in 1991 with a visit to the Teddy Bear Museum, Strafford -upon-Avon. They fell in love with an exquisite little bear she had made and asked her to make more and more.
Hardy Bears are born in Wessex, once home to novelist Thomas Hardy, whom the bears are named after.
Over the years, June has specialised in small bears 3.5 inches (10cm), for 6 inches (15cm) and make from finest quality mohair in the same traditional way the original ‘Teddy Bear’ was made to the early 1900’s.
