1892 Antique Palmer Cox Brownie Nine-pin Game (w Ten Brownie Characters):
These paper-on wood figures have beautifully lithographed images of Cox's Brownies and the original bases. The Nine-Pin Set included ten characters and is sometime mistakenly called a 10-pin bowling set. The characters include: Chinaman, Irishman, Highlander, Indian, Policeman, Uncle Sam, Sailor, Soldier, Canadian, and Dude. They are each about 12 inches tall. This set comes from a family member who was a very serious Brownie collector in the 1950s. Feel free to ask questions or request additional photos. Thanks!
10 Brownies with original stands. No box or balls. Very good condition for their age. Highlander (in kilt) has a break at his right foot, but the piece is there. Uncle Sam has a break at his right foot, and the piece is not there. Oddly, the back of Uncle Sam identifies him as Chinaman -- it's an error from when they were made. I saw a similar error in a set that sold last summer at a toy sale in Lambertville, NJ. That set, with a box, sold for over $6,000. Returns accepted for any reason.
