HUMMEL® - CELESTIAL MUSICIAN
The third issue in the RJW Hummel® collection is the beautiful "Celestial Musician" based on an original illustration by Sister Marie Innocentia.
The Celestial Musician is made entirely of the finest all-wool felt. Fully jointed with the RJW ball & socket system with internal wood mechanism, the lovely angel child stands approximately 12" tall. This is the first RJW Hummel to feature the distinctive lowered eye lids. The molded felt head has delicately hand painted features, and a wig of the finest mohair. The expressive hands have individually-sewn fingers and sculptural details.
The Celestial Musician comes costumed in a classic all-felt gown with metallic star motif. The angel wings are beautifully sculpted and molded out of felt and delicatelly hand painted. The entire costume has been artistically shaded in subtle hues to evoke the original Hummel coloring perfectly. The little musician holds a custom-made violin and bow handcrafted out of wood at the R. John Wright Workshop. A satchel made of all-wool felt hangs on a strap from one shoulder. Every detail has been meticulously researched to capture the essence and emotion of the original Hummel® design. Each doll includes a felt-covered wooden stand with a metal rod which inserts into a leg for easy display.
The Celestial Musician will be produced at the R. John Wright workshop in Bennington, Vermont in a limited edition of only 100 pieces worldwide. Each will come inside a deluxe presentation box with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration. The matching number service will be provided to other dolls in the R. John Wright Hummel® collection subject to availability.
