Ralphie is a bit of a forager as he likes to go digging for truffles that way he can sell them on for a ton of cash and then he can splash out on some real bear gold. And in case you are wondering what bear gold is, well in Ralphie’s case it’s a very sizable catering jar of honey.’ Why don’t you just forage for honey in the first place’ I ask. ‘Truffles are a walk in the park to sniff out and dig up. There‘s no messing about inching your way along perilously bendy branches plus this way I don’t get my nose stung either’ You have to admire his gumption.
Ralphie is 56cm/22" head to toes (45cm/17 1/2" sitting) and has the most gorgeous Schulte mohair fur of gold background tipped with caramel brown. His paws are distressed soft kid leather with needle sculpted toes. He is 5 way jointed with lock line armature in arms and legs and is stuffed with poly fill and ball bearings for a pleasing heavy weight. He has dark topaz English glass eyes and leather eyelids. His nose is hand sculpted and then covered with leather then waxed to a soft shine. Ralphie has been subtlety hand coloured just a little around his eyes and muzzle and is wearing a check neckerchief and has a little leather bag with an old silver plated spoon for the digging and collecting of his truffles.
