A rather unique Frank Marshall figure has joined
the Ventriloquist Central collection and I wanted to show him to
you. The figures name is Freckles and he was purchased from Frank
Marshall in the early 1950's for
Carole Silvester (click here to see
more about Carole Silvester).
He is 39" tall and is 100% original as the way he came from Frank
Marshall except for the wig. Somewhere in his lifetime his wig was
replaced with a red fur type cloth as you can see in the pictures
but I could not leave that so I replaced it with a wig more in
keeping of the style which was originally on the figure (click link
above and you can see the original wig in the picture of a young
Carole with Freckles).
He has side to side self centering eyes, has a
single winker and of course slot jaw. He also did have some chips on
his nose as well as on his cheek and around the edges of his ears. I
touched those up to the original look. His freckles are original
done by Frank Marshall.
Carole has included some autobiographical information as well as her
young picture and brochure and picture of her today with Freckles
(click link above) just before shipping him off to me for his place
with his brothers in the Ventriloquist Central Collection
I hope you like seeing this superb Frank Marshall creation.
