Teddy Bear

Peregrine - William Simpson Teddy Bear Collection

This teddy bear was named ‘Peregrine' by Mr William Simpson, who was an avid collector of more than 250 teddy bears. Peregrine is pale cream coloured with darker pads and a pointed nose. This teddy bear comes with a blue box with the text 'Colour Box Miniatures' on the back, as well as a leaflet inside with 'Peter Fagan's Teddy Collection' and the name and a picture of the bear and its potted history inside.

Peregrine is one of three Colourbox ceramic Bears, along with 'August' and 'Chocolate Chip', received by Mr Simpson from L Denimal of Dunkerque at Christmas 2001.
