This vintage marionette stands at a height of 2 feet and features a hard composition head, hands, and feet. Its arms are made of wood, while its legs are made of rubber. The marionette is dressed in a felt vest and bow tie, complete with a collar and suspenders. It also wears a polyester shirt and shorts. The marionette comes with an oversized wooden controller that has a nameplate stating "Pelham Puppets Made In England." Additionally, the controller has a large metal spring at the top, allowing it to be used as a hanging display. Unlike regular marionettes, this one is simply strung for store or window display purposes.


Pelham Puppets is a renowned British puppet company that was founded in 1947 by Bob Pelham. The company gained immense popularity for its high-quality and beautifully crafted marionettes and hand puppets.


Today, Pelham Puppets are considered valuable collectibles, cherished for their craftsmanship and nostalgic charm. They serve as a reminder of the rich history and artistry of puppetry, and the impact that Pelham Puppets had on the world of puppetry and play.
