1960s Unboxed Type SS Dutch Girl Pelham Puppet
We have available a very cute 1960s Unboxed Type SS Dutch Girl Pelham Puppet wooden marionette made by the Pelham Puppet Company, UK.
Dutch Girl sports a green Dutch style hat, a green felt waist girdle, white blouse and a checked patterned orange and white skirt. She is in fairly good played with condition. Her clothes could all do with washing (probably not practicable, since they are glued/stitched to the body) as they are stained with age. Due to storage, the typical wings of the Dutch Girl’s felt national head dress have been flattened but could probably be coaxed back into position.
She is 12” in height (excluding the strings), with green wooden toggle feet and screw eyes holding the body together. This means she is a type Standard Stringed (SS) puppet.
The wooden face is in good condition with no loss of paint to the eyes or mouth.
This would make a nice ‘starter’ puppet for the marionette collection. We also have a Type SS Mitzi Pelham Puppet available.
