Bob Isaacson's "Mr Crabbe"

 

Today it is my pleasure to introduce you to Mr Crabbe. This is a truly one of a kind figure which was made and used by our good friend Bob Isaacson. I did say made by Bob but there were other hands involved. The head casting with unfinished face was done by John Arvites , the mechanics were done by Alan Semok and then the finish carving of this great face ,the painting, wigging and body was done by Mr Isaacson.

The cool thing about this figure is he was done at least 2 years before Bill Nelson in partnership with Chuck Jackson created Mr Horowitz. Just goes to show you that nothing is new.

This figure stands 40" tall has slot jaw, side to side self centering eyes and lowering eyebrows. His hands are very heavy cast hands and his lower legs are carved wood.

He is a wonderful example of the talent that Bob has in creating and bringing to life ventriloquist figures.
