Mid - 20th Century Negro and Punch Puppets
We are proud to offer a delightful pair of hand carved puppets in the form of a negro girl and punch figure. Both puppets are hand painted to add detail, their clothes are made from silk and cotton and hand stitched to fit. These are finger puppets that would have been part of a larger group, entertaining children in small street theatres across France typically.
Size in inches: H 20” x W 5” x D 4”
Origin: French
Period: 1940 – 1950
Material: Pine and Material
Condition: Completely solid in structure and form, Faded in areas due to natural aging. This aging extends across all the wooden surfaces. 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.

It’s quite simple. We buy what we like. We believe that extraordinary items are owned by extraordinary people who live in extraordinary spaces. We are driven by the passion to unearth and offer the most unusual, decorative and rarest objects.

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

We often get asked by our clients, “Where did you find that?” The answer is always the same. Look hard enough and you will find what you seek.
