5501 - Yetta Bear
© Carol-Lynn Rössel Waugh, 1987
5501 - Yetta Bear was the creation of Carol-Lynn Rössel Waugh, an artist, writer and bear fancier, who also created Eric-Jon Bear, as a brother for Yetta. Yetta is short for her full name, which is Yetta Nother Bear!
First issued in 1987 as a Worldwide Limited Edition of 5000, this 11" bear was initially priced at £29.95.
She was given a new Dakin number, 85-5010 in 1990, but does not appear in catalogues after that date, when we must assume that her edition had sold out, or that she had been discontinued
