Max Jacob (1888-1967) was a german puppeteer and founder of "Hohnsteiner Handpuppenspiele", one of the largest puppet companies in Germany. The company's carving style was so expressive that its unmistakable creations became highly admired and even replicated by other artists. The company was based in the town of Hohnstein and due to its popularity, puppets carved in a similar manner are generally referred as "Hohnsteiner".

Here's a Lady hand puppet carved in this style and finely handcrafted in Germany circa 1960s. It is nicely hand painted and has a gorgeous expression. Its structure is solid but it shows some age wear, gained during its many years of life. Its apron has some light age stains. Its imperfections, however, give this piece a unique personality full of vintage charm. Little Lady is certainly a special find and will be a great addition to your old puppet collection!
