This late 19th C. marionette of a black man is all handmade and handsewn. His head is paper mache, his arms and legs are wood and his body is cloth covered with stockinette. He has tabs hanging down for strings to attach. His wooden feet are covered with homemade leather shoes and the wood has been weighted so his feet have realistic mobility. His stance has a nice fluid look. He would look great in an old pair of worn denim overalls. He is 26" tall and comes with the profession stand made for him. He is a wonderful and historic marionette. Circa 1880-90
