We are pleased to introduce The Englishman - the latest addition to our acclaimed PALMER COX BROWNIE COLLECTION. This whimsical character made his appearance in Cox's first Brownie book published in 1887 titled "The Brownies, Their Book."
Based accurately on the original Palmer Cox illustrations, the Brownie Englishman from R. John Wright is made of the finest all-wool felt and jointed at the neck and shoulders. He has a molded felt character face, hand painted features, a mohair wig, and tiny sculptural hands. Measuring 9" tall, the Englishman has heavy wire inside his legs to enable him to be self-standing.
The Brownie Englishman is ready for a leisurely stroll around his country estate in his very proper attire consisting of a wide brimmed sportsman hat with a tailored tattersall suit. The pattern of the suit is acheived by carefully sewing a grid of embroidery thread on the all-wool felt. His double-breasted felt waistcoat features lapels and tiny custom-made buttons. The Englishman's hand-cobbled boots are made of the finest topgrain calfskin. No detail has been spared to bring this delightful Palmer Cox character vividly to life!
The Brownie Englishman is produced in a limited edition of 250 pieces worldwide. He comes inside a deluxe R. John Wright presentation box with a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity and the forms for owner registration. Subject to availability, the matching-number service will be provided to previous pieces in the Palmer Cox Collection. The Englishman is available through all RJW authorized retailers.
