THE FOUR SEASONS - Summer
An adorable little boy named "Summer" is the final piece in the "Four Seasons" series of toddler dolls dressed in vintage-style children's clothing.
Summer is made of the finest all-wool felt. He measures a diminutive 7 1/2 inches tall which represents a new cabinet-size child doll from R. John Wright. He is fully jointed with the RJW ball & socket system with internal wood mechanism. Summer's molded felt torso and limbs are sculpturally defined and his tiny expressive hands have individually-sewn fingers. His molded felt face is delicately hand painted and the blonde wig is made of the finest mohair.
Summer is costumed in a vintage-style 2-piece play suit made of finest cotton broadcloth trimmed with wool felt with genuine mother-of-pearl buttons. On his head he wears a white cotton sun hat and on his feet, hand-cobbled red leather sandals with miniature custom-made buckles.
In one hand Summer holds an authentic replica of a classic "Playmates of the Clouds" Hi-Flier kite! The HI-FLIER KITE COMPANY, based in Decatur, Illinois, led the market for paper kites mid-century. This detailed miniature is constructed just like a full-size original with a wooden frame and a cotton rag tail.
As part of the "Four Seasons" collection, Summer was limited to only 100 pieces worldwide. Each doll came beautifully boxed with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
