This keepsake, hand sculpted Lemur Wedding Cake Topper features a pair of Ring-tailed Lemurs dressed for their wedding. They are adorned with handmade white flowers and their striped tails curve together in front.
I sculpted them by hand with a custom-blended polymer compound that has a subtle sparkle and marbling. Their eyes are glittering aventurine glass and they stand just over 5-inches tall.
You will receive the exact same figurine in the photos, and it is ready-to-ship. They'll be on their way within 3-5 business days of payment. They will arrive in a handsome gift box with a descriptive card, ready for giving or receiving. All of my Poupettes are sculpted by hand, one at a time, and stamped on the underside with my maker's mark.
As soon as payment is received, I'll confirm the shipping date. You'll receive shipping confirmation once they are on their way, and a tracking number, if available for your country.
My wedding cake toppers are made of non-toxic polymer and are not painted or varnished because the pigment is permanently suspended and sealed in the polymer. Therefore, they do not need a base, and can stand directly on the cake. They won't be damaged by, or damage edibles and can be carefully hand-washed with a gentle soap as needed.
If you would like a similar pair, but with two brides or two grooms, or different colored flowers or bow tie, I'd be happy to make it for you. Just let me know when you need it and I can set up a listing for you.
1-2 business days

By the way, I do not make anything shaggy or bristly, nor animals with complex markings, as they do not look good in my style (I wish they did!). I also never, ever copy other people's ideas, so please don't ask - thanks! ^_^
Yes, my figurines are made of a professional-grade, non-toxic polymer and do not require toxic paints or varnishes, because the pigment is permanently suspended in the polymer. Therefore, they can stand directly on a cake. They are also waterproof, and can be carefully hand-washed with a gentle soap as needed.
Signature confirmation is required for all shipments to prevent theft. If you are unable to be at home to sign for the package, I recommend keeping an eye on the tracking, and once a delivery attempt has been made, go to your local post office with the tracking number to pick it up. Back in the day USPS used to leave notices and attempt re-delivery, but this has become rare in recent years, and I wouldn't count on it.
I ship all orders (with the exception of custom and express mail orders) within 3 days of purchase. If you are on a tight deadline, or purchase express shipping - please contact me directly and I'll get it out ASAP. Otherwise, I ship Mondays and Thursdays, with the exception of USPS holidays, when I ship the next day.
Shipping to U.S. addresses takes from 2-5 business days, depending on the shipping mode selected at checkout and how far you are from a major city.
All of my shipments include a USPS Tracking Number which is automatically sent via e-mail as soon as the package has shipped.
If you purchase Priority Mail shipping, your package will automatically be insured up to $100.
Signature Confirmation is required to create fewer opportunities for theft.
Priority Mail Express Shipping is available for purchase at checkout and takes 2 business days, unless you live in Portland, OR (which will be next day delivery).
You will receive a digital invoice/receipt for your order through Etsy. For packages shipped within the U.S., I do not include a paper invoice, but if you would like one, just let me know and I'll be happy to include one. I am required by law to include 1-3 paper invoices with the purchase price in my packages for all international orders.
Yes, I regularly ship to many countries all over the world. Delivery to addresses outside of the U.S. usually takes between 2-4 weeks, depending on the type of shipping selected at checkout. Be advised that actual transit times vary by destination and are not guaranteed by the Postal Service. I urge international buyers be aware of how your local Customs and Postal Service operates before making a purchase.
There are many countries I no longer ship to due to problems with local postal delivery service. I will make an exception only if it is shipped via Express Mail, with the understanding that I am not responsible for the package once it leaves the U.S., and will not issue a refund for missing packages. Contact me for more information.
No, I absolutely will not mark international items as "gifts" or alter the cost of goods. All customs forms are are automatically created through USPS and Etsy. They are accurately labeled 'Merchandise' with the actual cost of the item in compliance with international law. I cannot predict nor can I be responsible for delays in customs or any additional fees or taxes that may be charged by your local jurisdiction.
For minor repairs, I recommend using a cyanoacrylate gel (also known as 'super glue'. I highly recommend Loctite Gel). If a figurine arrives damaged from shipping, I will repair or replace the figurine depending on the amount of damage. Simply let me know and ship it back to me, preferably in its original packaging. I will refund the shipping cost to cover the unforeseen expense and repairing your piece will be my number one priority as soon as it arrives. My turnaround time will be just one week.

My fiance proposed after we had been to the zoo to feed the Lemurs, so when we saw these cute critters we could not resist. It was really difficult to choose and all the animals are so beautifully crafted. Shipping was very fast and arrived safe and sound. They will sit pride of place on our cake this August.
