I was fairly taken with this cabinet, it had some great characters. I love these three old men in the center, they are British politicians, very topical for the run up the election. There is Lloyd George and two others, which I need to look up. I didn't make a note of them rather stupidly, if you recognise them, let me know.
There is a very good selection of Teddy Bears, here are a few including Steiffs, but my favourite in this photograph is the Bing Teddy Bear with a red tinplate clockwork ball, he dates from around 1910 and follows the ball around the room when wound up.
