An old bear I have acquired was next in line for restoration. I thought he just needed a patch on one of his paws and a general clean up.
Then I noticed that his eyes were different sizes, so they had to be replaced. I got out my scissors and started the process of finding the cotton to cut to release the glass eyes.
I found no cotton, but was amazed at how the eyes had been put in. They were just pushed in and held in place with a bit of glue.
However did those of us that were children in the 1940's and 1950's survive?
I have a bit of work to do on him and then he will be for sale in my Etsy shop.
