Very Small Frank Marshall Ventriloquist Figure

 

Frank Marshall made ventriloquist figures in all sizes. This one I am showing you is a rather small figure that stands only 28" tall. He is a terrific figure with a wonderful face. He is very unusual because he has cast hands and cast feet instead of wood. They have always been on the original Marshall body. The original muslin on the arms and legs matches the muslin covering the body.

Marshall did a similar type figure for Ventriloquist Bob King and his figure was called Tiny. It too had hands and feet which were not carved wood.

This figure has mouth movement only and of course the head can move 360 degrees. The was crafted by Frank in the 1950's and has great original paint and wig.

Another fine example of Frank Marshall's work.
