John & Susan Wright made a rare signing appearance in England at the first annual Teddy Bear Festival held at the magnificent Woburn Abbey estate and gardens. Two extremely limited RJW 'Edwardian' bears were made to mark this special occasion. The first is a little black bruin named 'Woburn.' He is accompanied by a sweet companion bear named 'Abbey!' Both bears measure just 8 inches tall and are made of the finest Shulte mohair. Five-way jointed, each bear features a molded leather nose, glass eyes, hand-embroidered features and detailed felt paw pads. Woburn sports a Black Watch plaid bow with a traditional brass bell while Abbey has tiny pink silk bows on each ear.
The bears are produced in editions of only 50 pieces each. Each teddy comes in its own RJW box with a numbered tag and certificate of authenticity. The bears are available individually or as matched-number sets.
A very special accessory has been created to display this precious pair. The delightful wooden garden bench is handcrafted at the RJW Studio. The design is inspired by the work of renowned 19th-century UK architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens. His famed 'Lutyens Bench' is a staple at elegant English gardens and estates. The bench has been reproduced in perfect scale to the little bears and is infinitely fun to pose them with!
