One of the unsung ventriloquist figure makers
from England was Walt Botley. He produced Ventriloquist Figures,
Punch and Judy puppets and novelty items too.
His ventriloquist figures were done in paper mache much like the Len
Insull figures and had the leather mouth. Botley figures are
extremely hard to find today and his figures seem to go unnoticed by
the ventriloquist community.
Walt Botley produced figures from the 1950′s through early 1970′s. I
do not have exact time frame so if you know more please contact us
and let us know.
