UPDATE: NO LONGER AVAILABLE : The Wild Thyme Originals Studio presents Sebastien and Sandrine – Calico Bears!

Sebastien & Sandrine

UPDATE:  Sebastien and Sandrine have found a new home TOGETHER in the United Kingdom!

I am so pleased for you to meet this truly unique pair of little ones… Sebastien & Sandrine.   The are each one of kind artist teddy bears in miniature.    I can just see these little creatures running about, playing hide and seek in the attic of a very fancy French castle!  Because they look so absolutely adorable together, I will first be offering them as a set.  If I don’t have a taker for the set within 3 days, I will consider splitting them apart and offering them separately.  The pair is currently available directly from me for $684.00 US.  If you are interested in purchasing them, please click the Buy Now Pay Pal button just above.  Clicking the button allows you sign in securely to the Pay Pal system.  If you don’t have a Pay Pal account, Pay Pal can still securely process your payment using most debit or credit cards… after clicking the Buy Now button, just choose the “Don’t have a Pay Pal Account” option.   I do not charge for shipping… that’s my gift to YOU!


They are each made from a really unique calico plush fabric.  The fabric has been dyed in shades of cream, ivory, tan, and various browns.  Both Sebastien and Sandrine have inset muzzles in a soft ivory color.  Both have front and rear paw pads of ultrasuede with tiny pulled toes front and rear.


Sebastien (male bear) measures in at 4 and 3/4 inches standing, Sandrine is a bit more petite at 4 and 1/2 inches.  They have bent arms and straight legs with wire armature.

The best way to imagine the proportions of my bears is to look at the photos of them with my hand.

Sebastien & Sandrine Faces

Sebastien has hand painted acrylic eyes in a gorgeous shade of blue and Sandrine’s eyes are a bit more green.  They both have an undereye white accent and a sewn in upper eyelid.  Each sweet little face is shaded with complimentary tones around the nose, moth and eyes.  Their faces have been deeply sculpted using invisible internal stitches.

Both have an internal armature in their arms and legs that allows them  to hold soft poses.  You can turn their  feet out and lightly bend them at the wrists and elbows.  Sandrine wears a tulle skirt which I’ve distressed a bit.  The underskirt is made of two golden shades of tulle.  The over skirt is made of ruched and gathered vintage French ribbon in copper and blue tones.  Her little ruff is made of silk organza in a natural shade.  Her clothing is not designed to be removed.


Sebastien sports a waistcoat made of spice colored ulrasuede.  It has three tiny cream colored buttons long one side.  His neck ruff is made of the same French ribbon as Sandrine’s overskirt.  His ruff is not designed to be removable.  His waistcoat may be removed.

As always, I’ve paid very close attention to making sure that my miniatures have all the detail and intricacy of a much larger bear.  I am also a stickler for proportion.  I really like for them to pass for large bears until you see a  picture of one in my hand.

They will arrive lovingly gift boxed and with their own photographic Certificates of Authenticity.
