P.O. BOX 134 EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y. 12061
Here is a delightful little French Polichinelle.....the French marionette, "Punch". Made from a papier-maché or clay material, he measures 7 3/4"- 8" long. His lower arms and legs are also made from clay. His legs are attached to his clay torso via flat metal bands. His lower arms attach with cloth uppers.
He is in generally excellent condition with only minor paint wear to the black paint on his face. His clothing is original. I would date him as circa 1890-1910.
He is trés français... hang him from your bathroom mirror so that he can "Bonjour" you each morning! Or use him to decorate your doll room or doll case. $395.
