Paddington Bear has been at the heart of fundraising for Action Medical Research ever since his creator, Michael Bond, met the charity’s founder, Duncan Guthrie, in 1976. Paddington Bear always likes to help wherever he can and so, after chewing over the matter with Mr Bond, he agreed to support Action Medical Research as the charity’s official mascot. Paddington Bear’s cheery face has helped us attract thousands of new supporters who together have raised millions of pounds to help babies and children.
We have the perfect gift for any fan of Paddington Bear; a set of three limited edition prints of previously unpublished watercolour paintings of Paddington by his original illustrator, Peggy Fortnum, and signed by Paddington’s creator Michael Bond.
‘Off on Holiday’, ‘Away for the Day’ and ‘A Sticky Passage’ were created over ten years ago and only a few prints are still available. The original paintings were signed by Peggy and to complete the picture, Paddington’s creator and leading author, Michael Bond O.B.E. personally signed and numbered every print in this special edition, making them rare and highly collectible items.
Each image is strictly limited worldwide to an edition of 495 prints, produced to the highest standards of the Fine Arts Trade Guild and every print bears the Guild’s stamp.
Originally on sale in Selfridges of London at £225 each, we are delighted to offer them for £295 (+ postage, packing and insurance) for the set of three. Prints are supplied unmounted, allowing you to mount and frame to your own taste.
Could you sell Paddington pin badges on behalf of Action Medical Research? Our duffel-coated mascot appeals to a broad age range; we just need access to supportive high street companies to help him find his way to the public!
With five unique designs to choose from, including Paddington in pyjamas, the hardest part is picking just one.
