These original GOLLIWOG (or Goliwog) tin lithographed pinbacks were made to promote GOLDEN SHRED, an English jam. These were among the last giveaways made by the company. The pins measure 1-inch across and come in blue, white, red and yellow. The Golliwog character is similar to the old Sambo...maybe even inspired by him. The lot of pins are in excellent condition.
