Accessory Mascots

Male Figures:  1912 Robert - A Comical Policeman.

Robert - A Comical Policeman, from 1912.  Created by John Hassall who was a celebrated illustrator, graphic artist and poster designer.  All of his mascots are signed Hassall.  He also created the Airman character shown in the Action Mascots section of this site.

The facial expressions can be altered by moving his helmet.  This is achieved by loosening a small screw on top of his head.  The body is nickel plated bronze or brass some patanated and with a registration number 611941 on the bottom of the base.  Shown to be made of bronze in the 1922 catalogue for the retailer S Smith & Sons Cricklewood London NW2, however the Gamages of London catalogue for the early 1920s also shows this mascot priced at 19/6 and made in Brass with a nickel plated finish.
