British Bobby Doll, celluloid constable sleepy eye with helmet, Wot's all this, then? The bill, the rozzers, the plod in celluloid doll form - here is 6 inches of British constabulary in a splendid blue felt uniform, complete with original sticker which says "Made in Hong Kong" when uncurled (see last photo). Look at his rosy cheeks and silver chain, as if he had just wandered in from a Monty Python routine. Dinosaurs not included.

These days, of course, a British policeman would have a boring flat hat, the helmet is from the era when the police had blue telephone boxes like Dr. Who's Tardis.

I am presently researching the striped bit on one sleeve - all of the dolls I have seen online of this type has only the one striped cuff on the right, so I am guessing (also from the lack of any evidence of stitches or glue) that this how he is supposed to look, and there is nothing missing. I would say he's in excellent condition. Could be a nice gift for anglophile - or Monty Python fan.
