This marionette is probably 40 or more years old he has a good-cheerful feeling about him. He is 21" long. He has mouth that opens, he has nice articulated hands and pegged in real hair. Could be used for shows or as a collective decoration. A magical piece of art.

Price os for both rugs. 22" X 37". See images of the mate to this rug. I purchased these from an outstanding rug factory in China [Hong Kong store] in 1984, they were not new then.

The price is for both rug wall hangings. I purchased these wall hanging rugs in China in 1984. They were showpieces on display in a top of the line rug company showroom. They were not new when I purchased them so I would guess they are about fourty to fifty years old. They are two of the most detailed finely woven works I have seen. The colors are subtle, the carving is outstanding. I had them hanging for about a dozen years and they should be cleaned by a very good rug cleaning company. The set ...click for details
