Handmade Brownie Doll, 1950s

Regular price £25.00

Tax included.

Know anyone with nostalgia for their days of tea making, collecting hedgerow fruit and lining up in Sixes?

Well then this handmade Brownie doll from the 1950s would be the gift of all gifts for them, with its dinky yellow cravat and lovingly stitched blue peepers.

The brown cotton dress with a tie that we associate with the Brownies was introduced in 1917 with the style barely changing until 1990, when the brown frocks were swapped for tracksuits. Not nearly as stylish, but probably more practical for learning how to light a coal fire in.

Long live the mud-brown tunic.

And thank you to whatever dear old Brown Owl immortalised it with their needle and scissors.
