Founded in 1925, KERSA is Europe's leading hand puppet maker. Crafting puppets has been a family tradition over four generations and the company is still in production today. KERSA stands for "Kreative Erzeugnisse Realisiert im Spielwaren Atelier", a German phrase that conveys their main vision: to create products in an artistic manner while promoting the children's imagination.
This Sherlock Holmes Hand Puppet is an example of Kersa's amazing craftsmanship and was made in Mindelheim, Germany, circa 1960s. He is a rare character, hardly seen. His elegant appearance with hand stitched features is adorable. His body is made of a checked flannel fabric with detailed felt hands and hat. The head is stuffed with soft material and has a cardboard finger tube for movement. He is holding the often missing magnifying glass! This puppet is gently used and retains the Kersa metal plaque. Little Sherlock Holmes can't wait to join your vintage toy collection!
