The Golliwog (originally spelled Golliwogg)
normally has very dark, often jet black skin,
large white-rimmed eyes, red or white clown lips,
and wild, frizzy hair. Typically, it's a male
dressed in a jacket, trousers, bow tie, and
stand-up collar in a combination of red, white,
blue, and occasionally yellow colors.
The Golliwog image, popular in England and other European
countries, is found on a variety of items, including
postcards, jam jars, paperweights, brooches, wallets,
perfume bottles, wooden puzzles, sheet music, wall paper,
pottery, jewelry, greeting cards, clocks, and dolls.
