R John Wright ‘Wizard of Oz’ Dorothy


DOROTHY Standing 41cm tall, Dorothy is fully jointed at shoulders, hips and neck with the R. John Wright ball & socket jointing system with internal wood mechanism. She has a realistic moulded felt torso and limbs and her lovely hands have individual fingers. The compelling portrait face is finely modelled in a true likeness with delicate hand painted features. Dorothy’s meticulously hand-knotted wig is made of the finest custom-dyed mohair and precisely styled.
She is outfitted in the trademark costume consisting of a blouse of fine Italian cotton organdy with custom-dyed rickrack trim, period undergarments, and a pinafore dress tailored of imported blue checked cotton fabric. The dress is exactly patterned after the original design by famed MGM costumer, Adrian, with authentic A-line styling and includes such details as the hidden pocket in the side seam! On her feet, Dorothy wears cotton anklets and detailed miniature replicas of the iconic Ruby Slippers – hand cobbled out of fine leather and covered in micro sequins, rhinestones, and faceted crystals. On one arm, Dorothy carries a custom made miniature of the basket in the film with checkered napkin inside.
Standing 17 inches tall, the RJW Cowardly Lion is the most faithful recreation of this character ever made. Beneath his costume, he is an all-felt doll fully jointed at the neck, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees and ankles with the RJW ball & socket jointing system with an internal wood mechanism. He has a realistic moulded felt torso and limbs and sculptural felt hands with individually sewn fingers. The character head has been finely sculpted in a true likeness and skilfully moulded out of felt with hand painted features and inset whiskers.
