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 a cheerful Gnome with a nice expression. This puppet has a pressed felt face with button eyes and delicate painted features. His body is made of felt with short attached shoes! 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 with Else Hecht's triangular paper tag.
