Two French Mice
Pierre Mimolette and Marcel Tomme are two French sailor mice. They met on board ship as stowaways and quickly became great friends. At first they thought they were both suffering from sea sickness. But as it turned out not even mice like to eat ships biscuits and as soon as Marcel discovered the Captains secret supply of Almond Tuiles their life at sea became a whole lot better. ‘We have certainly sailed the globe’ says Marcel ‘and you know what sailors are like a cheese in every port’ he added with a wink.
Marcel and Pierre are 18cm/7" from head (excluding ears) to toes and have soft beige Mohair fur tipped with flecks of brown on a pale beige backing. Their tales and arms are wired for gentle posing and their inner ears are hand coloured kid leather. Each has a prominent needle felted an embroidered nose and has horse hair whiskers. Marcel/Pierre are 5 way jointed have English glass eyes and are filled with poly fill and weighted with a small amount of steel shot. Their paws are kid leather needle sculpted and hand coloured. Marcel/Pierre are looking ship shape in their best naval uniform of navy sailor pants, collar and cute pompom hat that can all be removed.
