Mid-20th Century articulated clown Marquette
A charming example of a mid-20th century French fully articulated Marquette, in the form of a clown. This figure is fully articulated with hanging support cotton strings (does not stand alone), wooden handle control for the puppeteer, hand carved pine sections, hand stitched silk and cotton clothing, with lovely hand painted detail across all areas of this charming figure. This item would have been part of a larger collection at some point in his life but now the lonely clown stands all alone.
Size in inches: H 20” x W 5” x D 4”
Origin: French
Period: 1940 - 1950
Material: Pine, silk, and cotton
Condition: Completely solid in structure and form, fading and wear across the surface area which include a loss of painted detail, scuffs to the wood and light chips in area. Its exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas in this piece, therefore we strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections are unclear to avoid disappointment.
