Else Hecht was born in 1888 in Munich. She was a craftswoman, puppeteer and came from a family of artists. Her puppets and dolls are rare and highly sought after. Here's one of her wonderful creations depicting Kasper, the German version of Mr Punch. Kasper has a very sweet expression. His face is pressed felt face with button eyes and delicate painted features. He is a full body character made of felt with hanging legs. Similar to other Else Hecht toys of the early-mid 1900s, this puppet was finely handcrafted in Germany using the best available materials. The attention to detail and craftsmanship are remarkable. This puppet hasn't been used and is in excellent condition but is missing Else Hecht's ID. Whether you are a puppet enthusiast or an Else Hecht collector don't wait to welcome this very special hand puppet to your collection!
