R John Wright has released a picture of The Palmer Cox The Canadian.....

Here is the first studio photo of the "Canadian" from the popular Palmer Cox Brownie Collection!

The Canadian is true to the original Palmer Cox illustrations and ready for the upcoming winter months outfitted in a wonderful toboggan outfit made completely of wool felt.

This whimsical character made his appearance in Cox's fourth Brownie book published in 1894 titled "The Brownies Around the World."

Based on the original Palmer Cox illustrations, the Brownie Canadian 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 Canadian has heavy wire inside his legs to enable him to be self-standing.

The Brownie Canadian is outfitted in a colorful outfit consisting of an all-felt greatcoat with felt covered buttons and sash, detailed mukluk boots, and a matching tassled cap. No detail has been spared to bring this amusing Palmer Cox character vividly to life.

The Brownie Canadian is produced in a limited edition of just 250 pieces worldwide. He comes inside a deluxe RJW presentation box with a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity and the forms for owner registration.
