Glorice began making bears in 1993, they are an old fashioned humpback bear design. They are made of fine European mohair or alpaca, fully jointed and have been firmly stuffed. Their paws are felt, ultra suede or real leather, eyes are of hand blown glass, nose and mouth are hand embroidered. They are not intended as a toy, but rather as a good friend to be enjoyed and passed down through many generations. No two are alike, all are signed and numbered.
