Here's a spectacular Collection of Punch and Judy hand puppets. The set includes the characters Pretty Polly, Hangman, Crocodile, Death and the Devil. All wooden heads are finely carved and beautifully hand painted. Their hands and legs are also made of wood and they have lovely fabric bodies. These toys are rare finds from an old hand puppet set. Their origin is unknown. They are likely of German origin made in the early 1900s. Their structure is solid and displays well, but they show play wear, gained during many years of entertainment. However their imperfections only give them an added layer of charm and personality. A nice patina of time that only early toys have. This great piece of history will certainly be a special addition to your antique toy collection!
