Description: 7", wool felt, fully jointed.
Date of Release: 1988-1989
Edition Notes: Ltd. Ed. 2500.
"Piglet with Violets" is made of the finest custom-dyed all-wool felt with hand-set ears, delicate airbrushed coloring, and glass eyes. Piglet wears a cotton knit jumpsuit in a soft custom-dyed spruce green color. The suit was embellished with the newly-introduced 'RJW' brass button. In one hand, Piglet carried a bunch of violets - a favorite flower of his - handcrafted out of all-wool felt.
Piglet with Violets was produced over a 2-year period in an edition of 2,500 pieces. Each came enclosed in an exclusive deluxe presentation box with a reproduction of an original E. H. Shepard illustration of Piglet on the lid. There was no certificate included with the Piglet with Violets. Instead, collectors were given the option of sending in a small card which reads: "To receive a certificate of registration issued in the owner's name, please enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope with this card and return to: R. JOHN WRIGHT DOLLS, INC." This card is still attached to the cotton tape used to tie Piglet in his box.
