Teddy and Me, Victorian Girl & Bear by R. John Wright

A special ticketed R. John Wright dinner event at the annual 2017 UFDC Convention in Orlando, Florida provided the setting for the introduction of a classic doll and bear set titled ‘Teddy & Me.’

This nostalgic set was based on a vintage photograph of a Victorian girl and her classic Teddy bear. The photo, circa 1910, was featured on the cover of a 1996 Christies auction catalogue which included the actual bear in the photograph. The bear, named ‘Albert’ sold for £18,400… that’s almost $24,000 in US dollars. Over 20 years later this charming photograph became the inspiration for R. John Wright’s darling doll and bear set: Teddy & Me.

Me, is a 12 inch all-felt doll. She has jointing at her hips, shoulders and neck for expressive posing. A sculptural torso and limbs along with individually sewn fingers add to her realism. Me has a hand-knotted wig made of the finest mohair with silk bows and a lovely molded felt face with hand-painted features. She is costumed in an authentically detailed Victorian Summer dress made of embroidered Swiss lace with tiny pin tucks and mother-of-pearl buttons. Around her wrist is a dainty pearl bracelet and on her feet, hand-cobbled leather Mary Jane shoes. Not a single detail has been overlooked!
