We are pleased to present The Irishman - a member 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 Irishman 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 incredibly tiny sculptural hands. Measuring 8 1/2" tall (without his hat), the Irishman has heavy wire inside his legs to enable him to be self-standing.
The Brownie Irishman hails from the Emerald Isle outfitted in a tailored felt swallow-tail jacket with felt-covered buttons, tattersall shirt made of felt with an embroidered grid and custom-made tiny buttons, knee-length felt breeches with working pockets, a tall felt hat with a leather band, and hand cobbled leather slippers. Included is a knobby handcarved wood 'shillelagh' walking stick made to our specifications by the renowned ANRI company in Italy. No detail has been spared to bring this delightful Palmer Cox character vividly to life.
The Brownie Irishman will be produced in a limited edition of just 250 pieces worldwide. He will come 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 numbered 250 and lower in the Palmer Cox Collection. The Irishman is also available through all RJW authorized retailers.
