Made by Tuck/Zag-Zaw, London, England in 1930's. Plywood, interlocking, 10 figure pieces. Artist: Harold Copping. From Ch. 2, Dickens’ "Oliver Twist": “He rose from the table; and advancing to the master, basin and spoon in hand, said: somewhat alarmed at his own temerity: ‘Please, sir, I want some more’. The master was a fat, healthy man; but he turned very pale. He gasped in stupefied astonishment on the small rebel for some seconds, and then clung for support to the copper. The assistants were paralyzed with wonder; the boys with fear." Dickens was a fierce critic of much of British society and institutions of his day and his works helped pave the way for change.
