Heyde cold painted bronze golly standing. He is wearing a blue jacket with red trousers and bow tie and is carrying a Dutch Doll on his shoulders, holding her ankles. She has one stick arm straight up and the other out to the side. In total this piece measures just under 4.5 cms / 1.75 inches high

This figure is based on the characters first established in the children’s books of Florence Kate Upton, an American-born English cartoonist and author most famous for creating a character based on her aunt's golly. Upton was born in 1873 and created stories based on the golly and her penny wooden dolls. Her first book “The Adventure of Two Dutch Dolls” was published for Christmas 1895. Upton died in 1922.

The original golly and Dutch Dolls resided for many years at Chequers, the Prime Minister's country estate in Buckinghamshire. They are now at the V&A Museum of Childhood in London.

Postage and packing

Postage and packing is not included in the prices quoted and Lilliput World will always pack securely and send by the buyer’s choice of delivery service at your cost.

For those of you who prefer to click straight through and pay, we have given a set of postage options based on value and destination area. By definition, these have to be a best guess as the permutations of sizes, weights and values for sale on this site are huge.

So, if you prefer to decide what you want to buy and then contact us with details of your preferred shipment method and destination, we will be happy to give you a specific quote and then issue your Paypal invoice. The cost quoted will be the actual cost of postage, including any insurance, plus a small amount to cover the packing materials used.

If the buyer asks for the goods to be sent without insurance, then Lilliput World will only be responsible for the value that can be reclaimed as standard from the chosen carrier.

If you do complete the sale automatically and the system charges you excessive postage, this will be refunded to you via Paypal once the correct postage is known. Likewise, we cannot be held to deliver goods to international destinations where the automatic postage supplied is significantly less than the actail cost. We will then contact you and discuss the options and take additional payment as required.


We do our best to ensure that our descriptions are accurate to the best of our knowledge. Under UK Law, any buyer has full rights of return, including return postage, if Lilliput World is shown to have misrepresented an item.

But we cannot accept items for return where buyers have changed their mind. So please ask any questions before purchase to make sure that you know exactly what you are buying.

We are very happy to answer any questions you may have about our shop or stock and to be approached to buy single items or collections but they need to be in very good condition, preferably boxed, and lead civilians only.
