Kate Greenaway (1846-1901) was one of the most influential British book illustrators of the Victorian era. Wildly popular in England, she also attracted a wide audience in the United States and many of her books were printed in German and French editions, as well. Greenaway's enchanting watercolors of children wearing clothing from an earlier age evoked the Victorian reader's sense of nostalgia for the rural life of eighteenth-century England and echoed her own longing to retreat from the industrial urban setting of her native London. Her work continues to touch a chord in all of us for a simpler and more gentle time.
We are pleased to offer this charming set of twins by R. John Wright. Each 8 inch twin is faithfully based on the charming Kate Greenaway illustrations. Fully jointed, Molly and Jack each feature a sculptural molded felt body with an internal wood mechanism to connect their limbs and head. Their ball and socket jointing system with internal wood mechanism allows for graceful and expressive poseability. Their tiny sculptural hands are sewn with individual fingers and the facial features are delicately painted by hand. Each twin has a wig of the finest imported mohair.
Greenaway's darling little boy is dressed in a tailored period two-piece cotton suit with organdy ruffles and tiny mother of pearl buttons. He wears cotton stockings and hand-cobbled leather shoes. He is topped by a natural straw braid hat embellished with a band of handmade felt daisies.
The sweet little matching girl wears a beautifully detailed outfit made of cotton and organdy with a matching cape. Her fetching bonnet is sewn of natural straw braid, also decorated with tiny handmade daisies. Period undergarments and silk stockings complete her delightful period ensemble. Molly and Jack are available in a small edition of 150 sets. Both dolls come together with matching edition numbers inside a deluxe RJW presentation box. Included with each set is the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration. Part of the Kate Greenaway Collection by R. John Wright.
