Teddy Bear

Emile - Mr Simpson Teddy Bear Collection

This teddy bear was named ‘Emile' by Mr William Simpson, who was an avid collector of more than 250 teddy bears. Emile has jointed limbs and wears grey trousers, a red and cream check shirt and a cream and brown tweed knitted jumper with a wine coloured trim.

Yvette was received by Mr Simpson as a gift from L Denimal of Dunkerque in Christmas 2005. The bear shows no evidence of its country of manufacture but it was probably intended as a Motor Car mascot as it had a loop attached to the head. This loop was removed. Possibly belongs with Mr Simpson's teddy bear 'Yvette'.
