approx.7.25 inches high (8 inches with hat)
Isle of Appleshire Series

Phineas, at the age of 325 yrs.,is one of the elder residents of the village of Earthgate. Like his father,Sam, he became a clock tinker and has been in the business of repairing and selling clocks in the village. He is a very orderly and overly persnickety which is probably why he is single. The exception to this is his unruly hair, so you will usually find him wearing his lizard skin top hat.
He is a full body sculpture of polymer- Prosculpt, mohair hair and hand painted eyes. He carries a back pack with leather straps (made by his mother,Flora) to hold the clock parts and a book with images of the newest clocks available for purchase and wears the tidiest handmade linen clothes.He also has a bit of arthritis now, so he walks with a cane.

"Albert Buttonwood"
approx.8 inches high
Isle of Appleshire Series

Albert, at the young age of 175 yrs.,is a care-free resident of the village of Earthgate. He was a helpful and creative young boy who had a problem with tying bows and learning knots. He found his true calling when buttons started to become popular in the village and immediately began carving a beautiful line of styles for his family to use. His wonderful designs were such a big hit with others, that he decided to sell them. The demand grew very quickly and soon he was taking orders and hiring two other carvers. He enjoys hiking and traveling so he occasionally takes those times to peddle his buttons and find new customers in other parts of the island.
