There's no place like home.... There's no place.... home, unless you are in love with the work of R John Wright.

Then you may wish to click your heals together and come down to

Apple Pie House
( Gloucester Antique Centre )

Where you can order a most amazing collection, which will become available soon.

If you haven't already guessed, John and Susan Wright are about to put their Magical creating talent to the fabulous MGM classic

Wizard of Oz

"Dorothy" - the premiere piece in the collection - will be faithfully based on the the character unforgetably played by Judy Garland in the 1939 film.

Dorothy Gale - the Kansas farmgirl who is swept away into the Wonderful Land of Oz - will be vividly brought to life by R. JOHN WRIGHT DOLLS.

Standing approximately 18" tall, Dorothy will be fully jointed and made entirely of the finest all-wool felt incorporating a realistic sculptural body and limbs and a compelling portrait face with delicate hand painted features. Her lovely hands will have individual fingers and she will have a meticulously hand-knotted wig made of fine European human hair.

Oz's beloved heroine will be dressed in the trademark costume consisting of a white cotton blouse with rickrack trim, period undergarments, and a pinafore dress tailored of custom-made blue checkered fabric.

On her feet, she will wear custom-made anklets and hand cobbled Ruby slippers - covered in tiny sequins with rhinestones and faceted crystals!

On one arm, Dorothy will carry a custom made replica of the actual basket in the film. No effort will be spared to make this the most authentic version of this beloved character ever produced.

Dorothy will come enclosed in a deluxe presentation box gilt-embellished with the Wizard of Oz logo. Included will be the accompanying signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.

Matching numbers will be provided to subsequent characters in the series.
