This original Dottie was made in America in the 1920s and had ‘lived’ there until Ian bought her in 2014 at the annual San Diego Teddy Bear Show. The following year we had an actual-size Dottie replica made as an Old Witney Favourite. She sold out ‘in a twink’. We think the time has now come for . . . Little Miss Dottie (less than half the size of the original).
This delightful little bear is made of sensitively aged, cinnamon-gold mohair with two-tone glass eyes and felt paw pads. She wears a hand-embroidered, lace-trimmed, cotton dress and lace-up, brown leather shoes.
