The RJW Hummel® collection will be led by "The Merry Wanderer" - the most iconic of all the Hummel figurines. Made for the first time in the felt medium, The Merry Wanderer is fully jointed with the RJW ball & socket system with internal wood mechanism. Standing approximately 12" tall, The Merry Wanderer has a distinctive custom face mold, delicately hand painted features, and a wig of the finest mohair. The expressive hands have individually-sewn fingers and molded sculptural details. The Merry Wanderer comes costumed in his all-felt 3-piece suit as shown in the illustration above with a molded felt bowler hat and umbrella. His entire outfit has been artistically shaded to evoke the original Hummel coloring exactly. Sturdy hand-cobbled leather shoes and a felt and alpaca carpet bag with wood rails complete his trademark ensemble. As a final perfect touch, in the tiny pocket of his trousers there is a custom-made RJW pocket watch made of brass with a glass lens! Every detail has been meticulously researched to insure that this is the finest and most authentic Hummel® doll ever made.
Produced at the R. John Wright workshop in Bennington, Vermont in a worldwide limited edition of only 250 pieces, each Merry Wanderer 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 further dolls in the R. John Wright Hummel® collection.
