This adorable little girl named "Spring" was the main souvenir doll at the fifth-annual R. John Wright convention in 2013. She was the first issue in a "Four Seasons" series of toddler dolls dressed in vintage-style children's clothing. The dolls in this collection were limited to only 100 pcs worldwide. Spring sold out at the convention to attendees. This particular doll is rare Artist Proof #4/5.
Spring is made of the finest all-wool felt and measures seven inches tall - a new cabinet-size child doll from R. John Wright. She is fully jointed with the RJW ball & socket system with internal wood mechanism. Spring's felt torso and limbs are sculptural and her tiny expressive hands have individually-sewn fingers and molded details. Her molded felt face is delicately hand painted and her wig is made of the finest mohair.
Spring is costumed in a period dress made of fine hand-dyed Italian organdy with dainty lace trim and handmade silk rosettes at the waist. She wears cotton panties and socks and finely cobbled all-leather Mary Jane shoes. Spring's bonnet is constructed of bonded pierced felt. Under one arm she holds her own toy bunny made of wool felt with a jointed neck, glass eyes, inserted whiskers, and tiny embroidered features.
