We are pleased to present The Policeman as part of our popular 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 on the original Palmer Cox illustrations, the Brownie Policeman from R. John Wright Dolls 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 8 1/2" tall (without his helmet), the Policeman has heavy wire inside his legs to enable him to be self-standing.
The Brownie Policeman wears an authentic, tailored felt policeman's uniform consisting of an topcoat with tiny custom-made brass buttons, matching felt trousers, a leather belt, and a custom-cast buckle with raised letters: "RJW." His badge displayed proudly on his chest reads "Brownie Police" and is also custom designed and cast in brass. The Policeman's helmet is made of felt with leather trim and decorated with a finely sculpted laurel leaf insignia and finial cast in brass. Hand cobbled leather shoes and a miniature wood billy club with a leather strap complete his period ensemble. No detail has been spared to bring this classic Palmer Cox character vividly to life!
The Policeman comes beautifully boxed with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration. The regular edition pieces of The Policeman are completely sold out.
