Hand painted Thursday’s Boy figurine from the Days of the Week range.
Designed by Freda Doughty. A series of 14 figures of children, with one boy and one girl representing each day of the week. The original seven figures were introduced in 1938. They proved so popular that a further seven figures were added to the range in 1954. The series was produced until 1985. In 1991 the Days of the Week were re-introduced again in paler colours, they were discontinued in December 2002. In January 2004 a small scale version of the series was introduced and was available for about two years, followed by a much cheaper version that was produced abroad.
