|The new arm looks much better than the white one|

I am really pleased with my first attempt at making a new limb for an old bear.
I didn't realise Percy could stand unaided until I started taking his photos for his listing on Etsy.
He needs balancing a bit to achieve it, but with his cardboard lined solid feet he can be posed in a standing position.
I'm still trying to find out who he is, this mysterious one-armed bear. His feet pads go to a point at the heel as some Bing bears do, so that may be a possibility. He is very well made, and his final seam is down his tummy as in Steiff bears.
If anyone can throw any light on his maker I would love to find out.
