9.8 inches (25 centimeters)

Othello is a wild black panther. He measures about 9,8“ (25 cm) sitting - without his ears.

His fur is a wonderful realistic looking plush. I stuffed him with natural sheep wool and some steel shots for weight.
His nose is sculpted of clay.
His eyes are of realistic green German glass.
I needle sculpted his face and gently shaded his muzzle by hand to achieve a living expression. So he needed some whiskers as well…

Instead of a neck joint I gave him a lockline running from head to tail - like a spine.
So Othello can move his head up and down and side to side (and everywhere in between). A very realistic feature. His legs and his ears are wired.
I made his pink paw pads of suedette. Of course he received claws which I formed of clay.

He will come to you with his red velvet ribbon and his Certificate of Authenticity including a cute photo.

Of course Othello grew up in a smokefree home.

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

Othello was not created of existing patterns, but designed only from photos and sketches, and exclusively by myself. He 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! :)
