French Puppet Set and Stage c.1940
For sale in this LOT is a unique and highly collectable circa 1940 hand-made primitive papier Mache and wood puppet show theatre and set of mounted puppets. This item is quite unique due to fact that the theatre and puppets come as a complete LOT in this sale. The puppets are normally sold singularly, and the theatres are harder to obtain. The puppets are both mounted but can easily be removed. The theatre has been sealed off however can be used to showcase the puppets if you so wish.
Theatre H 26” x W 30” x D 9”
Puppets H 16” x W 3” x D 3” Approx.
Structurally good, however the theatre shows much wear and tear. The papier mache is worn and faded across the box, the puppets show wear across the faces and the cloths are also aged. It’s strongly advised to review all close up photos provided in this advert to avoid and disappointment or propose questions before a purchase is made.
