Ready for playtime, Jane arrives from Maggie Made Dolls.....


Ready for playtime, Jane stands at 16 1/2" with her favorite toy; wool felt bunny holding his precious carrot. In shades of gentle blues, Jane wears a detailed silk blouse that is topped with a wool felt playsuit embellished with felt flowers and leaves.

Embroidered on her bodice is a white wool felt bunny with a fuzzy tail. One look at Jane and you know, "This is what little girls are made of...".
Brown suede Maryjanes to play in and a feminine little silk bow in her hair make Jane the perfect playmate. Brown eyes and strawberry human hair falling over her shoulders add the final touch of perfection.

Updated :- Delightful Annette Rauch Bears arrive and are proving.....

.......very popular.

Update :- So popular we have sold out of our first order. We are now awaiting our next deliveries, so do not delay order yours today, these pieces are limited to only 15.

Annette is very paticular about her work

So after a chain of design stages; ideas and sketches which go as far as the first-draft models, when the shape is revised several times and the materials and colours are matched with one another, the final pattern and shape emerge. the respective limited editions can then be finished according to these patterns. careful handwork and conscientious treatment of high-quality materials are always an important factor in the production of these creations. only the creations with a desired expression will get the unmistakable signature on the bottom ...

Signature on the bottom, I hear you say, yes you heard correctly.

On each of Annette's pieces you will find a small leather patch where she puts on the information of that character, Edition number and name etc.

To see these and other great bears and animals by Annette, please click on the header above.
