~*~ Teddy Bear Girl on a Swing ~*~ A Charming Bear by Teddy Bear Artist Flore Emory From the Teddy Bear Artist Collection of Janie Comito ~*~ Teddy Bear Girl on a Swing ~*~ by California Teddy Bear Artist Flore Emory, is one of many bears I collected from fellow teddy bear artists during the amazing revival period of the art of teddy bear craft that began in the 1970s and stretches into the present. Flore was a true pioneer in teddy bear art, beginning in 1970. She created teddy bears and dolls in the classic style and her imagination and artistry was often showcased in the Teddy Bear collector's books by Linda Mullins and in teddy bear collector's magazines. She was open and generous with her knowledge and often after Linda Mullin's show in San Diego, she invited other artist friends to visit her at her wonderful 19th century styled house in Fallbrook. There, it felt as if you'd stepped into a magic cottage filled with all sorts of antique toys, dolls and hundreds of teddy bears: antique, artist and of course, Flore's own amazing creations. Flore and I collected and traded many of our creations with each other over the years. I'm at the age now, that I want to share some of the wonderful artist bears that I've collected -- to pass them on to others who will care for and appreciate them. This one of Flore Emory's is quite special ~ This joyful little spring time teddy bear ensemble by Flore was created around 1997. The sweet little girl teddy measures 6" tall and is fully disc jointed. Her fur is short dense honey brown mohair plush, her paws are wool felt. Her eyes are black German glass and the nose is carefully embroidered. She wears a sweet lace collar with a blue ribbon tie, and vintage flowers with ribbon adorn her head. She sits on a hand crafted wooden swing seat with strong 'ropes' of wrapped wire attached to a strong wire arch covered with twisted twigs that combined with vintage floral elements presents a sweet, old fashioned vine covered arch. The little bear's paws are attached to the swing ropes with heavy thread. The wooden base is covered with real moss and vintage artificial daisies 'grow' on either side of the vine arch. The base is signed by Flore but not dated, and one of her printed labels, also not dated, will be included. I'm sure that I acquired the piece in 1997. This creation is not a toy and is intended for the adult collector, take great care with small objects around babies and small children. Occasionally I will be offering some vintage pieces from my collection by various teddy bear artists. I hope you’ll enjoy bidding on this fanciful Flore Emory creation.
