5180 - Bellhop Bear
© April Whitcombe, 1986
5180 - Bellhop Bear was the creation of Miss April Whitcombe, a celelebrated teddy bear artist in America.
First issued in 1986 as a Worldwide Limited Edition of 5000, this 10" bear was initially priced at £19.95.
He does not appear in catalogues after 1987, when we must assume that his edition had sold out
(Please note that in 1988, a larger 11½ Bellhop Bear, 5508, was issued)
