We are pleased to present the Queen's gardeners - whimsical additions to our ALICE IN WONDERLAND COLLECTION based on the immortal books by Lewis Carroll illustrated by Sir John Tenniel. Painting the Roses Red is a multi-piece tableau consisting of the Queen of Heart's gardeners, "Five," "Seven," and "Two" painting the roses on the Queen's large rose tree.
Gardener "Two" is made of the finest all-wool felt and jointed at the neck and shoulders. He has a disctinctive molded felt character face with hand painted features, a mohair wig, and tiny sculptural hands. Measuring 9" tall, the gardener has heavy wire inside his legs to enable him to be self-standing. "Two" comes wearing a traditional felt costume consisting of tunic with a leather belt and a tiny custom-made brass buckle, integral felt 'tights', a felt hood, and peasant slippers. He wears a pair of playing cards made entirely out of pressed felt. Patterned exactly after antique Victorian-era English playing cards, the initials "RJW" are incorporated into the decorative artwork on the card backs. The gardener's wonderfully detailed accessories include a custom-made tiny wood paint brush and miniature pail of paint!
Gardener "Two" is produced in an extremely small edition of 100 pieces. Each comes enclosed in a deluxe wooden cylinder presentation box along with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration. Gardener "Two" is also available through all RJW authorized retailers.
