The second issue in the RJW Hummel® collection is the charming Hummel "Skier" based on an original illustration by Sister Marie Innocentia. The Skier is made entirely of the finest all-wool felt. Fully jointed with the RJW ball & socket system with internal wood mechanism, he stands approximately 12" tall. This darling little boy has a distinctive molded felt face, delicately hand painted features, and a wig of the finest mohair. His expressive hands have individually-sewn fingers and molded sculptural details. The Skier comes costumed in his classic all-felt ski suit as shown above with a felt cap and mittens. His entire outfit has been artistically shaded to evoke the original Hummel coloring. Sturdy hand-cobbled leather boots and a set of handmade wooden skis and poles trimmed in leather complete his trademark period ensemble. Every detail has been meticulously researched to capture the essence and emotion of the original Hummel® children.
The Skier is produced at the R. John Wright workshop in Bennington, Vermont in a limited edition of only 150 pieces worldwide. Each will come inside a deluxe presentation box with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration. The matching number service will be provided to other dolls in the R. John Wright Hummel® collection subject to availability.
The Hummel Skier will be available through all R. John Wright AUTHORIZED RETAILERS and directly from the RJW COMPANY STORE.
