We are pleased to present The Jockey - a handsome 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 Jockey 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 Jockey has heavy wire inside his legs to enable him to be self-standing.
The Brownie Jockey is ready for the races outfitted in his authentic jockey uniform consisting of a pieced felt cap with a leather brim and chinstrap, a tailored felt shirt with custom-cast brass buttons, and felt jodhpur breeches. His tall hand-cobbled boots are made of the finest topgrain calfskin and in one hand he holds his detailed riding crop made of wood and leather.
The Jockey comes beautifully boxed with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration. The regular edition pieces of The Jockey are completely sold out.
