Product Description

A charming, papier mache puppet…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest that it dates to the mid part of the 20th century, onwards. Depicting ‘punch’ (from a Punch & Judy puppet show), this is a charming hand made piece. One can push their hand under the Red & White material to use the puppet, yet one could also put some packaging in (like we have), enabling the piece to ‘free stand’ for display purposes

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. The puppet is good structurally and is generally in good shape. There are some natural surface marks, scratches and paint chipping, yet we feel this simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
