GONE WITH THE WIND™ is regarded as one of the greatest films of all time. Faithfully adapted from Margaret Mitchell's best-selling novel, the film is set in the American South against the backdrop of the Civil War and Reconstruction era. Upon its release in 1939, the film was immensely popular, becoming the highest-earning film made to that point. Over seventy-five years later, it still remains the most successful film in box-office history.
We are pleased to present the "GONE WITH THE WIND MICE" - celebrating the classic 1939 motion picture. Brought to life for the first time in the form of mice. The third mouse in the series is "Mammy" - the beloved House Servant of Scarlett O'Hara. Actress Hattie McDaniel became the first African-American to win an Oscar in 1940, for her unforgettable portrayal of "Mammy" in Gone With The Wind.
Mammy is made of fine custom-dyed mohair plush with hand embroidered features, resin hands and feet, glass eyes, inset whiskers, and a leather tail. Mammy is authentically costumed in a black servant's dress tailored of cotton broadcloth with a crisp white collar and cuffs and a custom-made brooch at her neck. She wears an cotton batiste apron and traditional bandana around her head. Under her skirts, is a ruffled petticoat made of scandalous red silk! Mammy measures approximately 3" tall and she has a built-in metal stand for effortless display.
The Gone with the Wind mice are fully-licensed and produced at the R. John Wright Dolls studio workshop in Bennington, Vermont in a limited edition of 250 pieces worldwide. Each mouse is numbered and boxed with a corresponding signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
