John Darling joins the exciting R. John Wright Peter Pan Collection!
"I say," cried John. "Why shouldn't we all go out!"
"There are pirates." Peter said temptingly.
"Pirates," cried John, seizing his Sunday hat, "let us go at once!"
John is the second child of Mr. and Mrs. Darling. His dream is to experience all the adventures in his story books. It is all to be found in Neverland!
John is the fifth character to join the R. John Wright Peter Pan Series. He is made of the finest all-wool felt and stands approximately 13 inches tall. His body is 5-way jointed with ball & socket joints for expressive posing, (and flying). His hands are realistically-detailed featuring separately sewn fingers. His boyish face is molded felt which is skillfully hand painted. His wig is of imported English mohair.
The finest pima cotton was used for John's striped pajamas which are trimmed with a tiny felt edge and feature workable buttonholes with pearl buttons. He wears hand made felt slippers with leather soles. His impressive top hat is made of black felt and lined with silk charmeuse. It is beautifully finished with grosgrain ribbon edging the brim. A cotton twill sweat band, tiny cord bow and printed RJW haberdashery logo give the interior that authentic top hat flair!
As with all RJW products, everything is made in our workshop here in Vermont.
John Darling is produced in a numbered limited edition of just 250 pieces worldwide. Each will come enclosed in a deluxe presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and forms for owner registration. Matching edition numbers to other pieces in the Peter Pan Series are offered subject to availability. The Peter Pan series is available through all RJW AUTHORIZED RETAILERS and direct from R. John Wright Dolls.
SHIPPING LATE FEBRUARY
PETER PAN, or THE BOY WHO WOULDN'T GROW UP (1904) is the title of Scottish playwright and novelist James M. Barrie's most famous play, and PETER & WENDY is the title of Barrie's 1911 novelization of it. Both tell the fanciful story of Peter Pan, a mischievous little boy who refuses to grow up. Did we mention that he can also fly?! Late one evening Peter steals into the London nursery of Wendy Darling and her younger brothers, John and Michael, and spirits them away to exciting adventures on the island of Neverland!
