Limited Edition Order of the Thistle Robe Bear

Description

A limited edition of 200.

This Limited Edition Teddy Bear has been commissioned by Buckingham Palace from Merrythought and is modelled on the robes worn by the Knights and Ladies in the Order of the Thistle.

Believed to be founded by James III it is considered the greatest order of chivalry in Scotland. The Order consists of The Queen and sixteen knights chosen personally by the Sovereign. Their motto is Nemo me impune lacessit – No one harms me with impunity.

Every other year, the Knights take part in The Thistle Service in St Gile’s Cathedral in Edinburgh, followed by a procession to the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

Merrythought is the last remaining British teddy bear manufacturer and to this day the bears are still handmade in the company’s original factory in Ironbridge, Shropshire.

Made from alpaca fleece with 100% cotton backing, the bear’s paws are made from velvet and he features a nose and smile that has been carefully hand-embroidered with cotton thread. The robes are fashioned from velvet and Duchess satin.

Not suitable for children under 36 months.

Surface washable.

40 x 23 x 12 cm.

Bespoke box 28 x 17 x 17 cm.
