The Village Idiot bears the reference number of 587, was designed in 1921 and is often worth as much as the rest of the farm yard combined. Britains was founded by William Britain, a clockmaker originally, who worked out the best way to hollowcast lead toy soldiers in 1893. Handpainted figure made in England. This figure is in excellent vintage condition. I photographed in sunlight to show more accurate color and condition.
