A piece of history for your home…

Mr. Pickwick was intricately designed by the sculptor Fred Wright for Bossons’ Dickens Collection. A popular character, Mr. Pickwick was produced from 1964 until 1996.

This is an earlier Mr. Pickwick, produced in the 1960s, as you can see from the flat back and raised staple. (This type of back was only manufactured in the 1960s; later Bossons switched to recessed staples, so the head would stay flush with the wall.) He is made of gypsum plaster and is hand-painted. He is approximately 5.5” in height.

He is in very good condition but does have some signs of age. He had to undergo a minor repair at some point to one of his shoulders. It looks as if there was a chip that was repaired and repainted. Also, the point where his lapels meet looks as if it has been repaired and repainted as well. Other than these signs of wear, he is in great shape and ready for a new home!

Mr. Pickwick was the main character in The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens.

About Bossons Character Wall Masks:

Mr. W. H. Bossons started the Bossons, Ltd. Company in Congleton, England in the late 1940s, and began making his infamous Character Wall Masks (or Heads) in the late 1950s. They gained worldwide popularity quickly. Made of gypsum plaster, each Head was hand-painted, and is unique. Though the sculptors and molders of the Heads were often male, the painters were always female. Bossons closed its doors in 1996, but the “Imagical World of Bossons” lives on through the passion of collectors.

This wall mask would make a perfect gift for the Bossons collector in your life or a fan of Charles Dickens.

Thanks for looking!
