PERIWINKLE, the R. John Wright mascot elf, was first introduced on the R. John Wright logo in the late 1970's. A felt version of the character was first made as a hanging ornament in 1979. A Collector Club version seated on a felt pincushion was produced in 1998 in an edition of 800 pieces. Now, as part of our 40th Anniversary celebration, we are happy to present Periwinkle in a unique larger size in an extremely limited edition of just 40 pieces!
Periwinkle is made entirely of the finest all-wool felt. He measures a diminutive five inches tall seated and is jointed at the shoulders and at the neck with a ball & socket joint to allow him to look up and down as well as to the side. Periwinkle's hands are sculpturally defined with individually sewn fingers and his molded face is delicately hand painted. His wings are made of the finest hand painted silk organza.
This edition of 'Periwinkle' is limited to 40 pieces worldwide. He comes enclosed in a deluxe RJW wooden box with a signed certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
