Item Description

Wee Forest Folk is a small family business, which delights in producing a line of miniatures – most of which are mice.

Annette Petersen crafted her first little critter many years ago. Since then her children have learned the ways of the mice and have created their own! Each miniature sculpture is a casting of an original piece sculpted in clay by either Annette, Willy or Donna Petersen.

Annette’s first mice were made of bread dough, which didn’t last very long (nibbled by the real thing, of course!). Now, we have much more sophisticated methods of molding which add strength and durability to every piece.

Meticulous hand painting brings each sculpture to life as talented artists have been carefully selected for their delicate hand skills. An enormous amount of time and patience is invested in producing this line. Everyone involved takes personal pride in assuring the quality of each mouse sculpture as it progresses through the many steps along the way to completion.

Wee Forest Folk sculptures are created, produced and copyrighted by the Petersen family since 1972 and are handcrafted entirely in Carlisle, Massachusetts, USA.

Most sculptures 1 1/2 – 2 1/2 inches in height.
