KING and QUEEN Toy Hand Puppets ~ Early 1900s Punch and Judy

Here's another great couple of the world renown Punch & Judy Show! The King and the Queen characters. These are attic finds from an old hand puppet toy set. Both puppets have nicely painted carved wooden heads with expressive decal eyes. They have fabric bodies with some lovely small wooden hands and legs. They are from German origin, likely made in the early/mid 1900s. They have solid structure and display very well, but they also show age wear, gained during their many years of life. However their imperfections only give them 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!

    arrived too fast

    They were exactly what we were looking for. My only complaint would be the too fast shipping. I wasn't expecting that kind of service, so I ordered way earlier than I needed.
