Faithfully based on the beloved character immortalized by Ray Bolger in the 1939 film, The Scarecrow™ has been brought to life by R. JOHN WRIGHT DOLLS for the first time in the medium of molded felt and cloth.
Standing 18 inches tall, he is fully jointed at the shoulders, hips, knees, elbows, and neck with the R. John Wright ball & socket jointing system with an internal wood mechanism. The molded cloth character face has been finely modeled in a true likeness with hand-painted features. Under his costume, the Scarecrow™ has a realistic molded felt torso and limbs and under his gloves, his amazing sculptural felt hands have individually sewn fingers!
Extensively researched for the utmost in authenticity, Scarecrow’s™ costume features a detailed coat tailored exactly like the original out of custom-dyed cotton flannel with bound buttonholes, leather buttons, and ragged tears. The trousers are also made of custom-dyed flannel with hand-stitched inset patches. The authentic cotton twill work gloves have individual fingers and a knit wristband and the hat is made of all-wool felt. His hand-cobbled boots are made of distressed leather. Custom-made miniature rope and straw accents complete his trademark ensemble. This is the most authentic miniature recreation of the Scarecrow ever made.
The Scarecrow™ is produced at the R. John Wright Dolls studio workshop in Bennington, Vermont, in a numbered limited edition of only 250 pieces worldwide. The ‘RJW’ brass button is affixed to each doll as a lasting mark of identification and a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity is included inside the deluxe Wizard of Oz presentation box.
