I came across this fella while researching historical figures around Civil War times. His name is Henry "Box" Brown and he was a slave that made it to freedom by literally mailing himself there! The idea came to him in a dream and with the aid of some kind folks around him, he burned himself to get out of work for the day and mailed himself to Philadelphia in a wooden crate.
What a fascinating story! I had to make a doll.
He's a great partner for brain storming, trips to the post office and reminding little ones how precious freedom is.
He is my first hatless male doll. I've found man hair to be a little bit of a challenge, but think I have finally hopped over that hurdle. I used wool roving for his hair. It cannot be brushed or pulled at too much, so either buy this doll as a collectible or for a kiddo that is old enough not to pull all of his hair off.
He's about 9 inches tall, is knitted from a wool/mohair blend and is stuffed with polyfil and beans.
Please spot wash or carefully hand wash him in cold water and air dry.
Please allow up to, but not necessarily, one week for knitting.
