this delightful Minnie Mouse character is part of the very rare Britains Mickey Mouse Model Series in Metal that was only issued in 1939. What made these models so special was that they were made with movable heads that are detachable so that it can be swivelled round to give a range of expressions. This example is Minnie's body, wearing a red skirt with yellow spots and red shoes, with two options of head. One is the correct look where Minnie is wearing a small green hat but this head is reproduction. The other is an original Mickey's head; exactly the same as Minnie's, just without the hat. Fully marked underneath base
