One of my Dad’s favourite dolls – the 2-Gun ‘Cowboy Mickey‘, made by Knickerbocker (USA) in 1934. Mickey stands 22″ tall and is the largest of the “Cowboy” range. He features Open Fingers, Soft Felt Shoes and signature ‘Pie-Cut‘ Oil Cloth Eyes. He even retains his original Rubber Tail. Even though Mickey is missing his original hat and pot-metal guns – he’s still a lot of fun to have around.
The badge/pin on Mickey’s scarf is something my Dad has found to be something quite rare. The unusual “black” metal border/frame is something Dad has never seen before. Made by Lemane (UK) in the early 1930s, and possibly came as a gift in a Pascalls or Rountree lolly packet. A similar pin with slight differences can be found in The Ellis Collection.
