R. John Wright
R. John Wright has delighted collectors worldwide since 1976 with his inspired designs of dolls, bears, and animals drawn from classic children's literature. R John Wright’s award-winning creations include: Winnie-the-Pooh©, Raggedy Ann & Andy™, Rose O'Neill's Kewpies®, The World of Beatrix Potter™, classic Disney characters, Paddington Bear™, Curious George®, St. Exupery's The Little Prince™, Lewis Carroll's Alice, and Thomas Nast's Santa Claus. These highly collectible dolls and animals have all been handmade in numbered limited editions by skilled artisans under John and Susan Wright's direct supervision at the R. John Wright workshop in Cambridge, New York. Each creation is distinguished by an extraordinarily high level of design and craftsmanship. In November 2004 the company moved to Bennington, Vermont, only a half hour from the previous manufacturing facility in upstate New York.
John and Susan Wright continue to oversee all phases of design and production, always stressing the integrity of design and the highest quality in craftsmanship--the twin cornerstones of all R. John Wright collectibles. R. John Wright dolls and animals have been honored with numerous awards, among them the Doll of the Year (DOTY) award, the Golden Teddy award, the Dolls Magazine Award of Excellence, the Golden George Award, and the Jumeau Trophy--all prestigious symbols of recognition for achievement in the collectibles field. The R. John Wright Collectors Club was launched in 1996, and in 2004, R. John Wright - The Art of Toys, the first fully-authorized comprehensive book on the work of R. John Wright, was published by Reverie Publishing. Toni's Collectibles is pleased to represent this outstanding line.
