Scope and Content

Collection of small models of characters from 'Tim Mouse' and 'Tim Mouse and the Major'. Features Tim Mouse, Mr Brown, and Mr Robin and the hot air balloon from 'Tim Mouse', and mice in red capes and soldiers on horseback from 'Tim Mouse and the Major'. Also includes some large cows. Models are made from gypsum and wood, and have been hand-painted. The majority of the models have wiring stuck into them to act as a support. It is unclear why the models were created, or whether they are contemporaneous with the creation of the books 'Tim Mouse' and 'Tim Mouse and the Major'.
