A Superb Marionette

 

I am a collector of ventriloquist figures but every so often items come and so it was with this Marionette. I am going to tell you I have no idea as to the maker of this marionette but it is terrific.

He stands 34" tall is carved from basswood and is articulated everywhere. I believe he is from the 1950's but can't prove that I am going by the style only. His hands are superbly carved as well. If anyone out there can identify him it would be greatly appreciated and if not I thought you all would just enjoy seeing him.

I will be re stringing him and hang him in the figure room.
