Mr. Bumble is from the Charles Dickens series produced by Bossons of Congleton, England. The design was copyrighted in 1969 and produced from 1970-1996, when the company closed. The piece was done in two versions - a light blue jacket (earliest version) and this later version in the dark blue. This piece measures about 5" long and is in excellent condition, with only one teeny nick on the lower eye socket. It is hand painted chalkware.
