Helen Duggan, an award winning artist, created these one of a kind, exquisitely beautiful, bears. Each bear starts as a no longer worn fur coat and is transformed, through labor and love, to a unique and cherished collectible. Helen and her husband Ed started creating these museum quality bears during the 1980's in their Boca Raton, Florida workshop; now retired and living in Kentucky.
This adorable Helen Duggan Teddy Bear is from the Palm Beach Collection. The fur is Snow Top Satin Rabbit with swede leather pads and muzzle and big pastel pink bow. Signed by Helen Andrews Duggan on the left foot, cloth tag “An Original By Palm Beach Bears”, and original hang-tag informational pamphlet. The arms and legs are jointed for movement, thus bear can be displayed sitting or standing! When in the standing position the Bear is 15 inches long. Excellent condition and ready for adoption.
