Here's a spectacular Gentleman puppet from the world renown Punch & Judy Show! This is a rare find from an old hand puppet set. He comes in unusual large size with a finely carved wooden head. The puppet is also beautifully hand painted. He has a fabric body with some lovely small wooden hands and legs. He is from German origin, likely made in the early 1900s. He has solid structure and displays very well, but he shows age wear, gained during his many years of life. However his imperfections only give him an added layer of charm and personality. This great piece of history will certainly be a special addition to any antique toy or theater collection!
