WINTERTIME CHRISTOPHER ROBIN
In the mid 1990's, R. John Wright Dolls produced an exclusive "Winter-themed" Winnie-the-Pooh Series for the world-renowned toy store FAO SCHWARZ. The first pieces featured Pooh & Piglet dressed for winter and Eeyore with his wooden stick house. Many collectors requested that a "Wintertime" Christopher Robin doll be offered to complete this set. As a result, in 1999, Wintertime Christopher Robin was produced for FAO SCHWARZ, in a matching edition of only 250 pieces - the smallest editions in the Pooh series.
Faithfully based on the original book illustrations of E. H. Shepard, Wintertime Christopher Robin captures the essence of winter adventure as Christopher travels into the 100 Acre Wood with his sled. Made of the finest 100% wool felt with a sculpted body, hand-painted face, and hand-knotted mohair wig, Christopher Robin is fully jointed at the neck, shoulders, and hips and stands approximately 12" tall - a lovely cabinet-size.
Christopher Robin is kept warm in his felt-lined overcoat and matching hat made of fine 'feather-cord' cotton cordoroy. Underneath, he wears a cotton jersey shirt with tiny custom-made buttons and tailored shorts made of blue cotton twill. Leather suspenders hold up his pants and he wears custom made rubber "Wellies" on his feet. All the clothing is completely removable.
Included is Christopher Robin's beautifully detailed custom-made sled, based on a full-size antique and reproduced in perfect proportion out of hardwood and metal.
This charming and very special edition was destined to be a quick sell-out. Wintertime Christopher Robin came enclosed in a deluxe presentation box with a reproduction of the original Shepard watercolor illustration on the lid. Included is a descriptive booklet, the signed and numbered certificate of authenticity, and the forms for owner registration.
