About the Golliwogg T shirt and all of the other golliwogg products and merchandise we are and will be stocking – each has the true, factual and historically accurate and documented history attached:
He’s not Racist, He’s my Golly!
The beloved ‘golliwogg’ first appeared in literature in 1895 in Florence Upton’s (and her mother’s) ‘Adventures of Two Dutch Dolls’. The book was a children’s story about Florence’s own childhood toys.
Florence named the Golliwoggs, by altering the word ‘Pollywog’. Pollywog is a Dutch dialect word meaning wiggle head, or ‘tadpole’. The word Golliwogg has no racial undertones. The English Golliwogg is no relation to the American ‘Little Black Sambo’. Golliwogg is a Dutch Elf who assists St. Nicholas at Christmas (his task is to go up and down the chimneys, and thus gets coated with soot).
Golliwogg was adopted as the mascot (or more aptly, ‘figurehead)’ of the Welsh miners early last century, he represents; honesty, generosity and tenacity – traits that still hold true today!
These are our current range of girls ‘High-Tea’ dresses designed by our good friend Judith ably assisted in business by her wonderful husband Ernie. Keep yourself posted by bookmarking this site because we promise you there are many more to come. We receive beautiful new clothing daily.
