Brant Gilmer is one of the few
today that I would consider to be like an old time figure maker. He
does it all from carving the wood, installing the mechanics and
painting the figure when completed. This is an example of a McElroy
style done by Brant.
He is about 15 years old and has the following
functions. Slot jaw, side to side self centering eyes, raising
eyebrows, winker / blinkers, and upper lip smile. All of Brant's
mechanics are direct linkage done in brass. A great creation.
(Disclaimer - this figure no longer a
part of the Ventriloquist Central Collection)
