This teddy bear was named ‘James Bear' by Mr William Simpson who was an avid collector of more than 250 teddy bears. James Bear is made of a honey coloured fabric, and has a swivel head and jointed limbs. This teddy bear wears black cotton trousers with a white dinner jacket, a white shirt with a lace front and a black bowtie. James Bear has a label stitched at its lower back with 'Made in Indonesia exclusively for Dean's Rag Book Co.' written. The teddy bear fits into a dark blue box with its name on a label on the front and 'Dean's Rag Book Co. Ltd., company trademark and Mini Bear' on lid. An information leaflet is stored inside.
James Bear belongs with 5 other bears: Billy the Bellboy, Bob the Policeman, Florrie the Flowerseller, Gordon the Guardsman and Bernie the Beefeater. These are all a set of Dean's miniature bears however they were actually made in the Far East under contract from Dean's.
