Sugar Plum by Elizabeth Lloyd, Dorset, England Circa 1997
Sugar Plum has just come to us with a large collection of, mostly Steiff, bears bought in the 1990s. She is made of distressed, lilac mohair with black glass eyes and ultrasuede paw pads. She wears a dress embroidered with flowers, harmonising with her mohair, and a coordinating summer hat. Softly pellet filled, the bear is virtually as new. The label is bent. This bear is number 1 of an edition of 6 made about 1997.
