Little Jack Horner sat in the corner,
Eating a Christmas pie;
He put in his thumb, and pulled out a plum,
And said, "What a good mouse am I!"
Little Jack Horner was the fourth piece in the charming series of costumed mice based on the Olde Mother Goose nursery rhymes.
Measuring a diminutive 3" tall, Little Jack Horner is made of the finest mohair plush and jointed at the neck and shoulders, He features realistic coloring, hand embroidered features, black glass eyes, inset whiskers, resin hands and feet, and a leather tail.
Inspired by an original illustration in Kate Greenaway's Mother Goose, Little Jack Horner is outfitted in a period costume consisting of a 2-piece aqua silk suit with ivory silk ruffles at the neck and cuffs and a jaunty felt hat trimmed in silk and finished off with a fine feather plume. He comes complete with his Christmas pie - a custom-made pewter pie plate topped by a realistic felt pie crust! A built-in metal stand provides effortless display.
Little Jack Horner will come inside a deluxe RJW presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
