"Pocket Owl" was the final addition to the award-winning R. John Wright "Pocket-size" Winnie-the-Pooh series. Designed in perfect scale to accompany the other pieces in the collection, this charmingly realistic character stands approximately 4 1/2" tall. He is exquisitely handcrafted of the finest materials including custom-made mohair plush, all-wool felt beak and feet, and imported blown glass pupil eyes. Pocket Owl's delicate coloration has been achieved by skillful air-brushing. His wings are moveable and he is jointed at the neck for increased expressiveness. Every detail has been carefully researched to capture the essence of Owl as portrayed by E. H. Shepard in the original illustrations in the classic Winnie-the-Pooh books by A. A. Milne. This edition has the distinction of being the only owl ever made by R. John Wright.
Pocket Owl was produced in 1999 in a limited edition of 3500 individually-numbered pieces. Each came enclosed in a deluxe RJW presentation box with a Shepard watercolor on the lid. Included was an illustrated booklet, the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity, and the forms for owner registration.
