R. John Wright - The Sailor, Palmer Cox Brownies Collection For Sale
R. John Wright Dolls -TheSailor - The Palmer Cox Brownies Collection
This whimsical character made his appearance in Palmer Cox's charming book of verses titled The Brownies, Their Book first published in 1887. The book begins with the following notation:"Brownies, like fairies and goblins, are imaginary sprites who are supposed to delight in harmless pranks and helpful deeds. They work and sport while weary households sleep, and never allow themselves to be seen by mortal eyes."Palmer Cox immortalized the Brownies in over 15 books with his delightful illustrations, poems and stories. Over 100 years after Cox's delightful sprites captured the hearts of children everywhere.Measuring 8.5 inches tall (without his hat), the Sailor Brownie is made of the finest custom-made wool felt which is both moth-proof and color-fast. He is jointed at the neck and shoulders and there is heavy wire inside his legs to enable him to be self-standing. He has realistic coloring, hand painted features, incredibly tiny sculptural hands, and a mohair wig.Based exactly on the Palmer Cox illustrations, our little Sailor is set to sail the seas in his traditional blue felt costume consisting of bell-bottom trousers and matching top with wide cotton collar. His collar is decorated with embroidered anchors and his nautical cap has a hatband with VOLUNTEER embroidered across the front. On his feet, the Sailor wears striped stockings and tiny felt slippers. The Sailor Brownie includes a detailed miniature life preserver embellished with the RJW button. As in the previously-released Brownies from R. John Wright, no detail has been spared to bring this appealing Palmer Cox character vividly to life.
Limited edition of250 pieces. Enclosed in a deluxe RJW presentation box. Included will be the signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and forms for owner registration.
