Bob Isaacson's Sailor Boy Ventriloquist Figure

 

This Sailor boy came to reside at the Ventriloquist Central Collection many years ago. It is 40" tall and has mouth movement only. It has that fabulous Frank Marshall look but was in fact reworked and sculpted by Bob Isaacson. read below.


Dan.....that was a plastic wood character that I "remade". It was originally a figure made by some friends of mine that were professional puppeteers for many years. They had large shows that traveled to schools for school assembly shows ( back in the days). The introduced me to plastic wood, "the good old kind" . back in the 1950's. I think it was in the 1980's that I changed the character into what you see today, using plastic wood.
