  • Collection of Vintage Papier Mache Hand Puppets England C1930 – 50 

    A wonderful collection of vintage papier mache hand puppets, hand crafted with extraordinary attention to detail. Featuring 3 soldiers, 4 pirates or smugglers and a pig, these have come from a private English collection. These pieces of English vernacular folk art date C1930 – 1950. The quality of workmanship in both the painting and clothing makes these very special. They are in excellent condition having been stored out of sunlight without any significant handling. We believe the pig may form part of a separate story, however it is from the same ‘artist’ and we felt it should remain part of the collection with which it was discovered. These have been mounted on vintage wooden shop display stands.

    Height :- 46cm on stand.
