7.4 inches (19 centimeters)

Chiquita is a sweet Chihuahua puppy. She measures about 6,9" (19 cm)sitting.

Her fur is a wonderful realistic looking plush. I stuffed her with natural sheep wool, and some steel shots for weight.
Her nose is sculpted of clay and painted in brown.
Her eyes are of realistic brown German glass.
I needle sculpted her face and gently shaded her muzzle by hand to achieve a living expression.

Instead of a neck joint I gave her a lockline running from head to tail-like a spine.
So Chiquita can move her head up and down and side to side (and everywhere in between). A very realistic feature. Her legs and her ears are wired.
I made her pink paw pads of suedette.
Chiquita can stand, sit and lie - as you can see on the photos - and pose in many different ways.

She will come to you with her black velvet dog collar - and her Certificate of Authenticity including a cute photo.
Of course she grew up in a smokefree home.

Please note: Due to small parts that could be swallowed, Chiquita is for the adult collector only and not suitable for children to play with.

Chiquita was not created of existing patterns, but designed only from photos and sketches, and exclusively by myself. She is completely handmade - a real OOAK.

My name is Yanina Link and I am a graduated fashion designer. Creating unique and completely handmade bears (and their friends) has become a wonderful profession for me. I only use high quality materials and fabrics for my creations. I am a real vintage fan, and so I am always looking for antique lace, buttons, fabrics... all over the world in oder to issue my bears with these beautiful treasures. I am really honoured that my "children" find their homes around the whole world. To see my bears in high quality pictures, please visit my blog!

Please note that my creations are for the adult collector only and not intended for kids to play with. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me!

You are always welcome! :)
