The Gondolier

The first piece in the charming series of costumed dolls and animal characters from Around the World, "The Gondolier" was introduced at a special ticketed meal event "The Canals of Venice" which took place at the fourth annual R. John Wright Convention.

Measuring a diminutive 3" tall, The Gondolier is made of the finest mohair plush and jointed at the neck and shoulders, The Gondolier features realistic coloring, hand embroidered features, black glass eyes, inset whiskers, an applied moustache, resin hands and feet, and a leather tail.

Inspired by the traditional costume of the Oarsmen of Venice, The Gondolier is outfitted in a striped jersey shirt, jaunty red silk tie, and tiny boater hat made of natural straw with a matching silk hatband. He comes complete with his handmade wooden oar - to row his way into your heart.

Produced in an extremely small edition of 100 pieces, each mouse came inside a deluxe RJW presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
