We are pleased to present the very first pieces of our highly-acclaimed PALMER COX BROWNIE COLLECTION. Cox's whimsical characters appeared in "The Brownies, Their Book" which was published in 1887.
Measuring approximately 8"tall, each Brownie is made entirely of the finest all-wool felt and jointed at the shoulders and neck with heavy wire inside the legs to enable him to be self-standing. Based on the original illustrations in the Palmer Cox books, the R. John Wright Brownies are skillfully molded and delicately hand painted. The delightful period costumes are tailored of felt with tiny covered buttons and leather brimmed 'Kepi'-style caps.
Each of the five band members holds a custom-made musical instrument and together they form a brass & percussion "Show Band" which includes: a Drum Major w/Mace baton; Tuba Player; Trumpet Player; Drummer with wood drumsticks; and Cymbals Player. The Brownie Band Members were produced in a limited edition of only 175 pieces. Each comes enclosed in a custom-made presentation box with accompanying certificate of authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
