Who and what is ‘Phillipina’?

by Claire Sisterson
(DH7 6SR uk)

“This is Phillipina -who began her life in Walthamstow in, or around, 1950.

She belonged to Marion Clifford (nee Fishman). Marion moved house many times but always took Phillipa with her, and even though she wasn’t always on show- she represented a very happy childhood.

Marion named her Phillipina after a young red headed neighbour, called Philip.
Phillipa stayed with Marian until January 2021.

She is made of sparse Gold mohair, wood wool filled, fully jointed, original amber glass eyes with a replaced growler.”
