We are pleased to present The Turk Brownie - an exciting new 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 Turk is made of the finest custom-made all-wool felt and jointed at the neck and shoulders. He has a molded felt character face, hand painted features, and tiny sculptural hands. Measuring 9" tall, the Turk has heavy wire inside his legs to enable him to be self-standing.

The Turk Brownie is outfitted in a delightful costume from the historic Ottoman Turkish Empire. His robe is made of wool felt trimmed with silk and tied at the waist with a silk sash. An Arabic medallion hangs from a cord around his neck and he wears Turkish shoes decorated with metallic braid. In one hand the Turk holds his scimitar sabre hand crafted out of wood by the R. John Wright artisans.

Legend holds that founder of the Ottoman Empire, Osman, had a dream in which the crescent moon stretched from one end of the earth to the other. Taking this as a good omen, he chose to make the crescent moon the symbol of his dynasty.

A molded felt fez provides the foundation for The Turk's authentic felt turban which is topped with a crescent moon. No detail has been spared to bring this Palmer Cox character vividly to life!

The Turk Brownie is produced in a limited edition of just 150 pieces worldwide. He comes inside a deluxe R. John Wright presentation box with a signed Certificate of Authenticity and the forms for owner registration
