Everyone knows that Frank Marshall was the Gepetto for ventriloquist
figures but he also produced a full line of marionettes. His 1931
catalogue has pages showing his marionette selections.
It is known that he did in fact purchase heads from Germany but he
made the bodies and controllers. I was very happy to have come
across Frank's blue prints for his 18" marionette and when I first
got them I ran down to the frame shop and had them framed, mounted
on archival paper, and covered with low e glass to protect them
These blue prints are full size for the 18" figure. I hope you enjoy
looking at these terrific blue prints from the master.
