Billy Boy Blue
Our Price: $425.00

Billy boy blue, come blow your horn,
The sheeps' in the meadow, the cows'
in the corn;
Is that the way you mind your sheep,
Under the haycock fast asleep?


The final piece in the charming series of costumed mice based on the Olde Mother Goose nursery rhymes illustrated by Kate Greenaway is Billy Boy Blue.

Measuring just 3", he is designed in mouse form of the finest mohair plush and jointed at the neck and shoulders. The first-ever sleeping mouse from R. John Wright, Billy Boy Blue has embroidered features, realistic airbrushed coloring, inset whiskers, resin hands and feet, and a leather tail.

Billy Boy Blue is costumed in a custom-dyed cotton smock of the period with authentic pleating at the front and tiny buttons down the back. A brimmed hat sewn of natural straw braid completes his charming period ensemble. Around his neck is a tiny cow's horn made of cold-painted pewter. Over one shoulder rests his finely-detailed shepard's crook handcrafted of pewter and wood.

Billy Boy Blue is limited to only 150 pieces worldwide. Each Billy Boy Blue will come complete with hay inside a deluxe RJW presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
Jack and Jill
Our Price: $825.00

Jack and Jill
Went up the hill,
To fetch a pail of water;
Jack fell down
And broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.


We are pleased to present the sixth piece in the charming series of costumed mice based on the Olde Mother Goose nursery rhymes illustrated by Kate Greenaway.

Jack & Jill each measure a diminutive 3" tall. They are designed in mouse form of the finest mohair plush and jointed at the neck and shoulders. Jack & Jill feature realistic coloring, German glass eyes, inset whiskers, resin hands and feet, and fine leather tails. Built-in metal stands provide effortless display for this charming couple.

From the original English nursery rhyme of the same name, Jack & Jill are costumed in true Kate Greenaway fashion. Jill wears an Empire-waist frock made of fine custom-dyed cotton batiste. On her head she wears a tiny bonnet sewn of mini natural straw braid trimmed with pink silk ribbon. Jack is outfitted in a custom-dyed cotton smock of the period with authentic pleating at the front and tiny buttons down the back. He is accessorized with a wool felt hat. Between them, Jack & Jill hold a hand carved and hand painted miniature wooden bucket as they start up the hill on their ill-fated venture! This is the first paired set of mice ever offered by R. John Wright.

Jack & Jill join previous, sold out issues in the Mother Goose Mice Series. Limited to only 150 sets worldwide, each pair will come in a deluxe RJW presentation box with the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
