The R. John Wright "Pocket Series" began with the release of "Pocket Pooh" in 1993. The delightful miniature bear proved to be so popular that an entire "Pocket-size" collection grew out of it based on the characters in the Winnie-the-Pooh books by A. A. Milne and illustrated by E. H. Shepard. The fifth issue in the series was "Pocket Rabbit" released in 1998. This special edition has the distinction of being the only R. John Wright version of Rabbit from the Winnie-the-Pooh stories.
Designed in perfect scale to accompany the other pieces in the Pocket Series collection, this charmingly realistic character stands approximately 5 1/2" tall. He is exquisitely handcrafted of the finest materials including custom-made miniature mohair plush and wool felt and imported glass eyes. Like all R. John Wright Pocket animals, Rabbit was first sculpted in wax and then molded using custom metal molds to give him sculptural form and consistency in the production. Pocket Rabbitıs delicate coloration has been achieved by skillful air-brushing and he is completely jointed to be playfully posed. Every detail has been carefully researched to capture the essence of Rabbit as shown in the original illustrations by E. H. Shepard in the classic Winnie-the-Pooh books.
Pocket Rabbit was produced 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.
