Simply Stunning Studio Bears!
The Teddy Bear Sale on Thursday 22nd August contains some of the rarest Charlie Bears ever to be offered for sale.
Started in February 2006 by Charlotte Morris and her husband William, Charlie Bears have had a meteoric rise to popularity over a relatively short period of time. Charlotte had built up a wealth of experience with customers, design and pricing having run a couple of successful Teddy Bear Shops in the North of England. Charlie Bears initially launched with twelve bears in the range, designed by Heather Lyell from New Zealand and Isabelle Lee from the US, today these are some of the most elusive and sought-after Charlie Bears on the market. Currently, the range includes Plumo (mixture of plush and mohair), Isabelle Collection, Minimo (smaller bears), Secret Collection (not in the regular catalogue but for QVC or other country specials), Animals, Accessories, Plush and Baby collections.
The ‘Bear Studio’ designed by Isabelle Lee are the earliest produced for Charlie Bears.They include many of the trademark features including hand-sculpted faces, air-brushed muzzles, hand-embroidered noses and glass eyes. Some have white felt under the eyes to give them that soulful look. Current editions are generally between 200 and 500 pieces world-wide but early releases only included perhaps 100 editions in total.
There are over 450 Charlie Bears in the Sale with 50 plus being Bear Studio and many of the newer ones are ex-shop stock in brand new condition.
Just a few highlights are shown below -
