Antique/Vintage Bears

As well as designing and making Teddy Bears and other Bear related items, The House Of Genista aims to offer a good selection of mid 20th century Teddy Bears, and other Animals/Toys from worn and well-loved to good and even mint condition. The House Of Genista is the perfect place for starting or adding to a collection or simply finding "A Special Old Friend!"There is no antique quite so huggable and endearing as an old Teddy Bear, and even today, collecting old Teddy Bears remains an International Passion. Available mainly on my website and eBay, but I do have a few here on my blog for you to take a peek at. For more information, please email me at genistabears@hotmail.co.uk. Each of my Antique/Vintage Teddy Bears comes complete with a H of G Bear Care Information leaflet and an organza lavender bag filled with french lavender to deter insects.
Thank you for looking.
Have a Good Day!

  1. Hi Hillary,
    The honey one on the bottom right looks so much like my brother's old bear (that I now own), 'cept the ears are slightly smaller...it's nice to see a few of the oldies still around.

  2. Hi Sandi,
    That's Broderick, my 1930's Chiltern in total original condition, a fabulous bear. It is lovely to see the old ones still about and being cared for. They do get lovelier with age I think.. Take care


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. Always nice to make a new friend or greet an old one....
