|Bob Fisher was a
ventriloquist who was from the Chicago area and performed in the
early 1950's with his figure Mickey O'Finn, which was carved for him
by Frank in 1950. To me when I look at Mickey O'Finn I see a very
strong resemblance to his first cousin Danny O'Day. Bob used his
Marshall dummy with the utmost of care because this fine Frank
Marshall figure looks like it was just delivered from the master
He is in what I would call 99.9%
perfect original condition. The only flaw is the tiny spec of paint
loss on his chin. Bob always wrapped him up carefully when done
performing and stored him in his suitcase so his condition is as you
see him 57 years after being made. A true museum piece. I have
enclosed a close up of Bob with Mickey circa 1950.
Mickey has side to side moving eyes,
his right eye winks and slot jaw. He also has a hand shaker an
unusual feature on a Marshall figure.
