Mice

These little mice are based on a design in Turning Vintage Toys by Chris Reid (GMC Publications). Using yew or laburnum branches gives them all their own features. Their ears and tails are leather, their eyes are turned from rosewood, partridge wood, African blackwood or ebony. They are popular for decorating wedding cakes, particularly those made out of cheese.

Guide price for these mice is £7.
