Thanks SO much for your responses! I was surprised that the bear did not come in a white box because this year's special Estee/Harrods anniversary solid did. I feel much better knowing that mine was not just missing! I will miss the boxes. They were a good worry free way to store the sleeves the solids are actually in.
I came very close to not getting the Estee/Harrods anniversary compact because I didn't particularly like it but finally decided that it didn't make sense to have all of them except one. I actually called Harrods back about 5 minutes after ordering the bear (I live in the U.S.) and ordered that one as well. I was very pleasantly surprised. I think it is MUCH nicer than the picture and I'm happy I decided to get it.
Hi! I am new to the board. I collect Harrods memorabilia and have all of the Harrods exclusive solids. I received Archie today and he is beautiful. Unfortunately I believe there is a problem and I wanted to check with those of you who have received yours already. Archie arrived without the outer box. Every solid I have has come in the same white outer box. I have all of my solids displayed and do not buy them for resale -- but these are collectibles and should not arrive with anything missing. I would really appreciate it if someone would let me know if their bear came with the outer box. Thanks so much!!!!
