** I HAVE BEEN PUTTING UP FOR AUCTION, SEVERAL OF OUR FINE COLLECTION OF ACCESSORIES HAVE USED OVER THE YEARS IN OIR SCENES (VIGNETTES) WE USED WITH OUR CAROLERS, FAITH WICK CHARACTERS & OTHERS. THEY ARE PART OF OUR 30+ YEAR COLLECTION OF COLLECTIBLES.

Up for this auction is a COMPILATION OF TWO PORCELAIN "IGOR THE RUSSIAN BEAR" - ONE A WICKET ORIGINAL, HANDMADE BY FAITH WICK, THE OTHER ONE MADE IN TAIWAN OF THE SAME DESIGN THAT WAS BOUGHT FROM FAITH BY SILVESTRI/BALOS, & A HANDMADE TWO (2) WHEELED DRAY CART HOLDING TWELVE (12) WOODEN BARRELS.

THE CART is fairly well scaled to the Breyer Horses; however I used it as a prop in a tavern scene featuring FAITH WICK’s “SANDMAN” & “BOGEYMAN” inside a tavern backdrop with this wagon & barrels out front of the tavern & FAITH WICK’s “BREMEN TOWN MUSICIANS” when we decorated the DeGolyer House on the grounds of the Dallas Arboretum during the “STOREYBOOK PLAYHOUSES" Festival.

I’LL LOOK FOR A PICTURE OF THAT PARTICULAR SCENE (VIGNETTE) JUST TO ILLUSTRATE HOW I USED THIS PARTICULAR COLLECTIBLE.

The "IGOR's" are basically the same bear, but one of them is the original design, handmade by Faith Wick & for which I have a Certificate of Authenticity (COA), & the other is the same mold that Silvestri/Balos bought from Faith & marketed in their Christmas Catalog & sold through their Chicago Store but was made in Taiwan. The cart is handmade, but of new wood, & the large wheels (6” in diameter) are made of molded cast iron. “BEAR EXPRESS” is stenciled on the sides of the cart, & I just thought that the juxtaposition of the three was synergistic.

The bears are well made with no chips or scratches to the porcelain & no discoloration to the uniforms. The sturdy little cart & well crafted.
