Mama Bearinger Ornament from The Bearingers of Victoria Circle
This vintage Hallmark Keepsake Ornament is Mama Bearinger, she's from the 1993 "The Bearingers of Victoria Circle" collection. She's a sweet tan colored bear in a fancy dress and apron and is leaning over with a pan of freshly baked Christmas-tree-shaped sugar cookies. The cookies are dusted with real glitter, so they sparkle.
The Bearingers of Victoria Circle collection included a set of four ornaments - Mama Bearinger, Papa Bearinger, and their two children, son Abearnathy Bearinger and daughter Bearnadette Bearinger. There was a lighted tabletop display shaped like a fireplace with raised shapes on it and each ornament had a cutout on the bottom so it could stand on the display without tipping over.
Mama Bearinger has a triangle indentation on the base, as shown in the last photo. She also has a hook on the back of her head if you'd prefer to hang her as an ornament. She stands up well on her own, so she can be displayed on a shelf without the base.
Mama Bearinger shows a little wear and a few paint rubs but is in good vintage condition.
The bottom of the ornament is marked "1993 Hallmark Cards, Inc."
- Height: 2 5/8 inches (6.7 cm)
