Merrythought are celebrating a landmark year! It’s 90 years since William Gordon Holmes founded the company in an old foundry in Shropshire. Ever since, the company has become a byword for quality and tradition. It remains a family run company with a small highly-skilled workforce who still hand-stitch every bear they produce.
To celebrate this important milestone, Merrythought have produced a very special bear exclusively for Danbury Mint. Holmes is made from the finest champagne coloured mohair with sparkling eyes and hand-stitched features. He has lovely velvet pawpads and a soft bean filling to make him extra huggable. Around his neck, suspended from a sumptuous golden bow, is a stunning pendant, plated in precious 22ct gold and featuring a crystal studded wishbone – the company’s emblem since 1930. It’s set with over 35 dazzling topaz crystals. Holmes is from a limited edition of just 1,930 pieces.
Actual size is 12" (30cm) standing.
