Frank Marshall Marionettes


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 forever.

These blue prints are full size for the 18" figure. I hope you enjoy looking at these terrific blue prints from the master.
