This is Mrs. Tiggy Winkle, the short, stout hedgehog, with her flat iron, ready to iron the clothes she’s taken in to wash. She wears a white mob cap; her red and white gown is tucked up under her striped petticoat, making a bustle at the back; she wears a long white apron, down to her shoes.
Based on Beatrix Potter’s own pet hedgehog, The Tale of Mrs Tiggy Winkle has been a huge favorite since 1905. Figurine measures 3 1/4” tall x 2 ½” wide. This is Beswick number BP3b, made from 1974-1985. Condition is excellent with no damage of any kind and no crazing.
