"A Stitch in Time" M-10 is one of the very special, very limited editions done by Wee Forest Folk. The series was designed by Willie Peterson. The sculptures accurately depict four time periods – Colonial- 1700s, Empire- early 1800s, 1950s and 1970s. All show a mother mouse from the appropriate period helping her daughter get ready for a dance. Note the historically accurate details with the furniture, accessories, costume details. You can see the flowers on the fabrics and detailing of ruffles and hair decoration. Reflected in the mirror, we see the mouse faces.
Here is a list of the colors and periods that we have. Please specify which you want for your selection:
EDWARDIAN: 1. Burgundy lady, blue seamstress 2.Dark blue lady, purple mom
The 1970s sculpture is listed separately.
Wee Forest Folk® are a line of original miniature sculptures, mostly mice, that represent the creative energy of Annette Peterson and her adult children, Willy and Donna who joined her in the business she began over 30 years ago. Each piece is a casting of an original sculpture by one of the three artists. Then the pieces are molded and each one is meticulously painted to bring the sculptures to life, by artists that have been carefully selected for their delicate hand skills. An enormous amount of time and patience is invested in each piece as it progresses through the many steps along the way to completion. The Mouse Factory is located in Carlisle, MA. and all their pieces are made in USA, from beginning to end. Each piece comes in a specially made box covered in pictures of WFF. This is truly a limited collectable that has held its value due to limited editions and controlled distribution. We are able to offer reduced prices because of the closing of our physical store in Indianapolis. Original retail was $960. for the set, $240. for one piece. They are listed in the Mouse Collector WFF Reference Guide, by Barbara Peek, 2003 edition, NY.
