I've seen two versions of this sweep and this is the hard to find earlier one with cardboard ladder, felt top hat, and thread-wrappeded wire & felt bristled brush. The later version has a plastic ladder, plastic top hat, and a bent small bottle brush with plastic bristles. Measuring 5 3/4" tall to the hat top, he has marvelous applied ears, hand painted features and felt covered metal feet. His face has some black paint on it to make him look dirty from cleaning out the chimney.
