Tiny Dancers

A Collection of ... er ... Toy Morris Dancers

by Andrew Bullen

One Christmas, I received 19 Morris Dancer lead figures. Each of these figures is about 2.5 inches (60 mm) tall. I suspect that they are Britains figures, but I do not know for certain. I have never found them in any toy soldier catalog that I have looked in. The figures represent 3 different teams, and include stick dancers, hankie dancers, and musicians. Have a look at them...

I posed them in front of a model church and added toothpicks for sticks.
It's obvious to me that they are dancing Headington Constant Billy,
which can be both a 2 stick dance or a hankie dance.
