Top of the Mornin' to yer.... R John Wright irishman Brownie Arrives......

....In Stock.

The Irishman - the latest addition to the 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 on the original Palmer Cox illustrations, the Brownie Irishman from R. John Wright Dolls 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 incredibly tiny sculptural hands. Measuring 8 1/2" tall (without his hat), the Irishman has heavy wire inside his legs to enable him to be self-standing.

The Brownie Irishman hails from the Emerald Isle outfitted in a tailored felt swallow-tail jacket, tattersall shirt, knee-length felt breeches with working pockets, a tall felt hat, and hand cobbled leather slippers. Included is a handcarved 'shillelagh' walking stick. No detail has been spared to bring this delightful Palmer Cox character vividly to life.

The Brownie Irishman will be produced in a limited edition of just 250 pieces worldwide. He will come inside a deluxe R. John Wright presentation box with a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
