19th Century Folk Art Dog Puppet
We are proud to offer a late 19th Century hand carved folk-art German Puppet in the form of an articulated dog. This unique example is completely hand carved using sectioned limbs, tail, and body. Original hand paint still presents with a wonderful natural patina across all its surface. This puppet still has its hanging metal rope attached which would have allowed the puppeteer to animate the figure in a puppet theatre. A lovely and rare example, with a great look with lots of character as shown in the photos provided.
Dimensions in inches: H 8” x W 14” x D 0.3”
Origin: Germany
Material: Wood
Item Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form, aged patina with weathering has taken place across all the surfaces. Flaked paint across all the surface with elements of aged rust also are present across the metal sections. The photos aim to illustrate the condition and age of this item, its strongly suggested to review these photos closely before a purchase is made.

Our house style is probably best described as artistic, theatrical and, even macabre.
