|This was and is a working marionette. You will have to re-attach some strings or restring the thicker white cords which are usually put on for sellling. Very nice hand carving and dressing. 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.|
