R. John Wright Ida Mouse™



R. John Wright Dolls, Inc., Summer Mice Collection

3", 2013, Jointed only at the neck and shoulders, is made entirely of fine mohair plush with realistic shading, resin hands and feet, glass eyes, inset whiskers, and leather tail.

Ida is the first russet-colored mouse from R. John Wright. She is based on the watercolor by famed illustrator, Racey Helps. Ida is costumed in a simple summer frock made of fine cotton batiste and she comes seated in her swing which hangs from the stem of a beautiful Shasta daisy! Mounted on a felt-covered base, this delightful tableau includes multiple additional daisies mixed with bright yellow buttercup flowers and ferns all made of felt and artistically shaded and hand colored. The entire piece measures 9" tall X 9" wide.
Ida's summertime companion, Tom (not shown), will be dressed in a pair of country overalls with tiny pockets and miniature custom-made buttons. On his head he wears a molded felt "button beanie" decorated with tiny multi-colored buttons. These caps became popular in the 30's and 40's when kids would re-purpose their Dads' old fedoras by flipping them inside out, turning up the brim, and trimming the excess into pointy scallops. The beanies were then decorated with colorful bottle caps, trinkets, or buttons. Tom features a built-in metal stand for easy display as he stands ready to push Ida on her daisy swing. Tom will be available for $395.
Ida will be produced in an edition of 250 pieces worldwide. Tom will be limited to only 150 pieces.
