Raikes Bears Misha and Ilia
The Journey Home by Carol Raikes and Illustrated by J. W. Raikes
signed by author and illustrator
Robert Raikes Collectibles Wee Whittles 2004
Limited Edition 1000
The Journey Home is a wonderful story loosely based on the real story of The Raikes' two adopted boys Misha and Ilia from Russia. The book is written by Carol Raikes and illustrated by Jason Rikes. Both signed the book.
The bears named for the boys are Wee Whittles. Ilia is a golden 5 inch long mohair fully jointed bear with a narrow hand carved face and big grin. Misha is a dark brown tipped mohair, a little taller than Ilia at 6 inches tall. His hand carved face wears a mischievous big smile.
Both bears are a limited edition of 1000 and have the same number 3. Ilia comes in a dark blue velvet bag with hand signed wood tag and Misha come in dark green velvet bag with hand signed wood tag. (Please note, those are not spots on bag-merely the plush of the velvet not smoothed down. I will re-take picture if there is question).
Comes from smoke free home.
