From the delightful Bodys Bears & Friends, here is Bean the Bearmaker Elf. Bean is from the Wee Folkstone Collection. He is an elf dressed in his work apron full of tools and surrounded by his pattern book, spools of thread, and bears he has made. He wears bear ears on his head and pincer eyeglasses on his nose.
This resin figurine was made in 1997, and is in excellent condition. It is Edition # and Pc # 4E/2005. It is also marked The Boys Collection LTD, Handmade in China. There is a Mark Twain quote on the underside: "I am a great and sublime fool. But then I am God's fool, and all his works must be contemplated with respect." The figurine measures about 5" high and 3.25" wide. The bear paw mark is on the base next to the copyright date of 1997. No box available.
