Brand: John Perry Studio
Details: Each of the pair of Doves comes in its own box, that is 2 Turtle Doves in 2 boxes, complete with a CARD for writing a short note, so they are perfect if you plan to give one as a keepsake to a friend and keep the other. Or they make wonderful gifts for other occasions - see our options to buy 2, 3 pairs at savings in our Amazon store. See also our Two Box Option where the emphasis in the box design is more on friendship - a little less on the movie. The Doves are approximately three inches in wingspan and two inches from beak tip to tail. Each box is 31/2 by 31/2 inches by 1 inch deep. They are molded from 'Pellucida,' our proprietary compound of resins that looks like porcelain,but unlike porcelain is very strong. They look so delicate and are as light as a feather, but they can withstand being dropped on the floor and other accidents. Since these are more likely to be kept as keepsakes, we provide a hanging thread but do not attach it as it detracts somewhat from the look of the birds when the box is first opened and also the thread can be attached either as a loop, easiest for hanging on a tree and removing later, or as a single thread whereby the dove can rotate more freely as though alive and flying for hanging beneath one's rear-view mirror or anywhere one's heart desires. BY WAY OF AUTHENTICATION, please see the excerpt from the contract between 20th Century Fox and John that, in consideration for the creation of the Doves and the other 12 Days of Christmas ornaments, allowed him to retain the copyrights and continue to produce replicas. To appreciate the exquisite sculpting of these little birds, hold them up to a light. They are translucent and you can see the skilled work that went into the carving of the wings - the feathers on one side of the wings perfectly matching the feathers on the other side.Note: All images/content(except the photos I took myself with the dolls) posted here are owned and provided by Amazon's Affiliate Program, Commision Junction, Awin, Etsy and Google Adsense.
