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.
