R. John Wright Dolls

Since 1983 all of the felt used in their dolls has been custom made in Europe (first in England and currently in Germany). The colors are custom dyed to their specifications and they specially request that the felt be treated to be both mothproofed and colorfast. This is an expensive process but RJW understands that collectors don't want to have to worry about these things which have wreaked havoc on so many wonderful antique felt dolls.

Moths and fading are not a problem, but because the dolls are made of fabric it is best to display them behind glass in a display cabinet or under a glass dome. If surface dust should occur, you can carefully blow them off with a blow dryer set on cool temperature and low setting. For smudges, careful use of an art gum eraser can eliminate unwanted spots.

Felt dolls have a wonderful warmth and an unusual quality not found with other mediums. There are absolutely no synthetics used in the production of our dolls. Even the stuffing is 100% cotton. There are many new materials out there that have not proven themselves to last the test of time. If cared for properly, our dolls can remain pristine indefinitely. We hope you will consider adding them to your collection!

We have been carrying them since the 1980's and just love them here at the Dollery!

"Wendy Darling"has been added to the fantastic "Peter Pan Series" which includes "Tinkerbell" and "Michael Darling" and the dog "Nane" - All available now. Special full set pricing - inquire. Email kmalone@dollery.com.

 

Wendy Darling - Ltd. 250 - $1,650.00 - for standard edition - free shipping in the continental USA- special offers available on set

 

 When Wendy Darling arrived Mr. Darling wasn't sure they could afford to keep her.  Mrs. Darling looked at him so imploringly that he declared  "Yes, the expense could be borne!"

Wendy is the eldest of the Darling children: Wendy, John and Michael.  She is a thoughtful young lady with a head full of fairies and adventures.  She is made of the finest all-wool felt and stands approximately 15 inches tall. Her body is 5-way jointed with ball & socket joints for expressive posing. She is realistically-detailed featuring  graceful hands with separately sewn fingers. Her  molded felt face is delicately  hand painted  and is set off with a becoming wig of the finest mohair.
 

Vintage nightwear from the period was the inspiration for her delicate cotton batiste nightgown trimmed with Swiss lace and pin tucks. Genuine pearl buttons and tiny buttonholes allow the nightgown to be removed.  Her underclothes are also of cotton batiste. She carries a miniature hand woven reed sewing basket with an attached cotton lining. The sewing basket is filled with sewing notions. Included are tiny needles and wooden spools of thread, scissors, and a pincushion.  She will find these items very useful in reattaching Peter's shadow. The expressive shadow accompanies Wendy and can be displayed in a variety of ways.  As with all RJW accessories, the basket and notions were made in our workshop here in Vermont.

Wendy Darling is produced in a numbered limited edition of just 250 pieces worldwide. Each will come enclosed in a deluxe presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and forms for owner registration. Matching edition numbers to other pieces in the Peter Pan Series are offered subject to availability.

 "There ought to be one fairy for every boy and girl if they only believe!"  said Peter.

Her face is hand painted and her untidy up-swept coiffure is of finest imported mohair.

DETAILS ON THE PIECES: Information: Michael is the youngest of the Darling children: Wendy, John and Michael. An adorable little boy, he is made of the finest all-wool felt and stands approximately 11 inches tall. He has a realistically-detailed body with separately sewn fingers and he is 5-way jointed with ball & socket joints for expressive posing. Michael has a molded face with delicate hand painted features and wig of the finest mohair.  Extensively researched for the utmost in authenticity, Michael wears a period diaper and "Dr. Denton" footsie pajamas sewn of cotton jersey with mother-of-pearl buttons and a drop seat. He comes holding his flannel blankie with scalloped felt edging and his well-loved classic teddy bear. The bear is a detailed miniature - fully jointed and made of distressed mohair with felt paw pads, glass eyes and hand-embroidered features. Michael Darling is produced in a numbered limited edition of just 250 pieces worldwide. Each will come enclosed in a deluxe presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and forms for owner registration. Matching edition numbers to Nana are offered subject to availability. We are pleased to present "Nana" - was the first piece in the exciting new Peter Pan Collection!

PETER PAN, or THE BOY WHO WOULDN'T GROW UP (1904) is the title of Scottish playwright and novelist James M. Barrie's most famous play, and PETER & WENDY is the title of Barrie's 1911 novelization of it. Both tell the fanciful story of Peter Pan, a mischievous little boy who refuses to grow up. Did we mention that he can also fly?! Late one evening Peter steals into the London nursery of Wendy Darling and her younger brothers, John and Michael, and spirits them away to exciting adventures on the island of Neverland.

"Nana" is the nursemaid of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling, hired by their parents to look after their children. A lovable Saint Bernard, Nana was played in the original stage production - and the 1924 silent film adaptation - by an actor in a dog suit. Nana is the first character we encounter in the Peter Pan story and she is also the premiere piece in the R. John Wright Peter Pan series.

Extensively researched for the utmost in authenticity, Nana is made of the finest wool and alpaca plush and sits approximately 9 1/2 inches tall. Realistically detailed, she has a molded face with delicate airbrushed markings, glass pupil eyes, and inset whiskers. Her neck features a ball & socket joint for expressive posing. Nana's limbs include paw pads and individually-applied nails made of molded, treated felt. Atop her head she wears her dainty nurse's cap made of fine Swiss embroidered lace interwoven with black silk ribbon. No detail has been spared to bring this adorable literary character vividly to life!

Nana is produced in a numbered limited edition of just 250 pieces worldwide. Each will come enclosed in a deluxe presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration

The Palmer Cox Collection (below)

Shown below are the "Chinaman Brownie" and the "Indian Brownie." Produced in very small editions of just 250 pieces, each is highly detailed and made entirely of all-wool felt. We want to make you aware of this exciting new series. Both are currently available for immediate shipment while supplies last! The suggested retail is $535.  Matched numbers are offered for collectors interested in acquiring matching pieces in the collection.
 
PALMER COX is famous the world over for his delightful children's books on the fictional creatures known as the "Brownies." His inspiration for the Brownies came from the Scottish folktales he learned from his mother which featured the Brownies, or little members of the faerie or goblin world. He described them this way: "imaginary sprites who delight in harmless pranks and helpful deeds. They work and sport while weary households sleep, and never allow themselves to be seen by mortal eyes."

Considered a pioneering artist of the Platinum Age of Comic Art, Palmer Cox brought the Brownies of childhood myth to life with his detailed illustrations and classic verse/story-poems. The first collection of Brownie stories was published in 1887 and sold over a million copies - an unheard of number for that time. Cox would go on to publish 15 more Brownie books - leaving behind a legacy of delight for children and the young-at-heart. It gives us great pleasure to introduce his beloved Brownies for the very first time in the medium of molded felt. Let me know if you need any further information.

Approx. 17" Tall - Est: Delivery 2006

Limited Edition of 250 - $1,875.00  SOLD OUT

R. John Wright presents Marcella and Raggedy Ann. The character of Marcella was modeled after illustrator Johnny Gruelle's real life daughter, Marcella. Marcella was the creative muse for Gruelle's original Raggedy Ann stories. When she was twelve, Marcella became extremely ill and became bedridden. Her father found an old rag doll in the attic and used the doll to create fantastic stories for his daughter to entertain her throughout her illness. Following her death, Gruelle published the stories to share with other children. The stories became the adventures of Raggedy Ann and Andy.
In this very special edition, Marcella will be modeled after Gruelle's original artwork. She will stand approximately 17" tall and will be made of fine all wool felt with a hand knotted mohair wig. Her body will be fully jointed and her portrait sculpted face will be hand painted. She will come dressed in her yellow cotton dress. Her bonnet will be trimmed with felt fruit and flowers. In her arms she will hold a floppy version of Raggedy Ann. This set will come in a deluxe presentation box complete with ownership forms and a reproduction of the original  artwork.
