I'd take a guess at Birmingham but there are loads of other clubs that have been nicknamed 'The Blues' over the years.

I presume there is no makers mark on the reverse to perhaps narrow it down a bit?

So would I Bispham.

The manufacturer is A White, Birmingham I believe, and that looks remarkably like a golliwog's head. Am I allowed to say golliwog????

Somewhere will know better than me, but weren't they manufactured there?

The Golliwog was in fact Birmingham's mascot for a while

Lovely badge.
It's almost certainly Brum, but still generic enough to enhance anyone's collection whose team plays in blue & white.

I've been long looking out for an amber & black one with the "Good Luck Boys" (or something like) motto on it.

Like this beauty that Cambridge Colin has ...
