WINTERTIME POOH & PIGLET
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 were followed by Eeyore with his wooden stick house and Christopher Robin and his sled. The Wintertime pieces - limited to only 250 each - are the smallest and most sought after editions in the RJW Pooh series.
Faithfully based on the original book illustrations of E. H. Shepard, Wintertime Pooh & Piglet captures the essence of winter adventure as Pooh walks through the snowy 100 Acre Wood accompanied by his good friend, Piglet.
Pooh is made of the finest 100% woven wool fabric called "coating." He measures 5" tall and is fully jointed. The Bear of Little Brain is outfitted in his customary red shirt vest with a mother of pearl button closure. Around his neck he wears a variegated wool felt scarf jauntily tied with balls at the ends. Piglet is made entirely of custom-made all-wool felt with airbrushed coloration and glass eyes. He is jointed at the neck and shoulders and measures a wee 2 1/2" tall. Piglet wears an integral long-sleeved suit with custom-made tiny buttons and a cozy red felt scarf.
This charming and very special set was an immediate sell-out when it was introduced at a signing event at the legendary FAO SCHWARZ flagship store in New York City. Pooh & Piglet came enclosed together 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.
