THE FLOPSY BUNNIES®
Beatrix Potter was well aware that her earlier books had created a huge demand for rabbit stories, and thus dedicated her 1909 volume The Tale of The Flopsy Bunnies: "For all little friends of Mr. McGregor and Peter and Benjamin."
In 2002, R. John Wright Dolls proudly presented The Flopsy Bunnies™ as the latest addition to the highly acclaimed R. John Wright Beatrix Potter collection. Handmade at the R. John Wright workshop, The Flopsy Bunnies were characterized by the highest level of design and craftsmanship and are true in every detail to the original Beatrix Potter illustrations. The set consists of six sleeping bunnies clustered around a head of lettuce skillfully molded and colored of the finest all-wool felt. Each of the bunnies is fully jointed, approximately 5 1/2" long, and crafted of custom-made mohair plush with embroidered details and delicate, airbrushed coloring. They are just the right size for picking up and nestling in the hand! Exactly as drawn by Beatrix Potter, one bunny features a pink silk ribbon and another a pale blue ribbon loosly tied in a bow around the neck. The bunnies are displayed on a molded felt-covered base approximately 12" in diameter. The entire piece measures approximately 9 1/2" tall.
The Flopsy Bunnies were produced in a limited edition of 500 sets. This enchanting edition was an immediate sell-out when it was released. They will come enclosed in a custom hand-cut presentation box. Included is the numbered certificate of authenticity, illustrated booklet, and the forms for owner registration.
