R. John Wright Matched Set of Frankenstein and Bride Mouse - Click Image to Close

Both 3", 2017, "Frankenstein" and the "Bride of Frankenstein" match set - is the first in a series of MONSTER MICE - celebrating the classic monsters of filmland! Frankenstein's fearsome bride is made of fine mohair plush with hand embroidered features, resin hands and feet, glass eyes, inset whiskers, and a leather tail,jointed at the neck and shoulders for added posability. The Bride is outfitted in a stark modernist gown tailored of crisp white poplin. Her arms are wrapped with silk bandages held together with tiny safety pins. Her iconic hairstyle is fashioned of fine merino wool hand-rooted into her scalp. Like most of the recent RJW mice the Bride has a built-in metal stand for effortless display.

Frankenstein wears the classic outfit of trousers, a collarless shirt, and a black topcoat. His hand-cobbled, sturdy leather boots enable him to stand unaided. Frankenstein's deathly pallor is accented by his lowered eyelids - giving him a touch of melancholy. Tiny metal staples in his forehead and bolts in his neck provide the perfect finishing touches.
