1960s Unboxed Type SS Tyrollean Mitzi Pelham Puppet
This is a very cute 1960s Unboxed Type SS Tyrollean Mitzi Pelham Puppet wooden marionette made by the Pelham Puppet Company, UK.
Mitzi sports a wide-brimmed green hat with a yellow felt flower, a black felt waist girdle, white blouse and a patterned green and yellow floral skirt. She is in fairly good played with condition. Her hair is in disarray, and the clothes could all do with washing as they are stained with age. Washing is not practicable as her body is stitched/glued in to the clothes.
She is 12” in height (excluding the strings), with yellow 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 Dutch girl Pelham Puppet available.
