Foy Brown Figures

 

 

 

Foy Brown was a vaudeville performer with his brother in a troupe called the Foy Brothers. They performed magic, juggling, mind reading, ventriloquism and acting. Foy used Figures made by Revello Pettee as his mainstay but, he himself was a prolific builder of figures from the 1940's through to the 1970's. The two I have pictured are very nice examples of his work. He made terrific bodies for his figures and some of the bodies had the rocking clavicle, which allowed the figure to actually look down. He also made shrugging shoulders and wiggle wig.
