Clean and Bright ~ Antique Chad Valley Bear

What a cute Chad Valley bear he is . . . after all the dust and dirt is gone. The lovely golden mohair was revealed. Thank you to Deb Burnham (teddy's mom) of bh.bears . . . for taking such wonderful "after" pictures. He does look quite happy with himself now : )



I pulled up the old pictures from a previous post so you can see
the Before and After photos together.




Bye bye . . . dirt !


I love the change too.

What an amazing transformation Karen!
Deb would be so happy to have her bear restored.

I will definately tell people about Old Soul Bears to anyone who
is wanting their bears restored.
