This is a vintage WEE WILLIE WINKIE HN2050 Royal Doulton Figurine. This figurine was manufactured between 1948 and 1953. The back stamp is Royal Doulton HN2050.

This little figurine is dressed for bed in his nightshirt, but instead of sleeping, he runs through the town with a lantern knocking on windows. He doesn't listen to his mother who becomes frustrated with trying to tuck him in.
The boy is carrying a lantern is knocking on windows and doors. This charming little figurine is 5 3/8 inches high.

This figurine is in very good vintage condition with clear and subtle colours and the glaze is glossy. No Chips, no cracks, no repairs, but there is a of a small area of CRAZING at the very back of the base ONLY when looked at through a magnifying glass. The price reflects the slight imperfection.

The poem, Wee Willie Winkie, is by William Miller.

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs in his night-gown,
Tapping at the window, crying at the lock,
Are the children in their bed, for it’s past ten o’clock?
Hey, Willie Winkie, are you coming in?
The cat is singing purring sounds to the sleeping hen,
The dog’s spread out on the floor, and doesn’t give a cheep,
But here’s a wakeful little boy who will not fall asleep!
Anything but sleep, you rogue! glowering like the moon,’
Rattling in an iron jug with an iron spoon,
Rumbling, tumbling round about, crowing like a cock,
Shrieking like I don’t know what, waking sleeping folk.
Hey, Willie Winkie – the child’s in a creel!
Wriggling from everyone’s knee like an eel,
Tugging at the cat’s ear, and confusing all her thrums
Hey, Willie Winkie – see, there he comes!”
Weary is the mother who has a dusty child,
A small short little child, who can’t run on his own,
Who always has a battle with sleep before he’ll close an eye
But a kiss from his rosy lips gives strength anew to me.
