Walking Figure

 

Ken Spencer created a walking figure just like Frank Marshall although Ken's walking system was a lot more complex in design. This is an example of just that. The head on this figure is exact to the final Figure used by the Great Lester. His final Broadway Danny was a Ken Spencer figure.

This figure has Slot jaw, and one eye is a rolling winker. The winker is a ring attached to string.

More About This Figure

 

I purchased this Ken Spencer walking figure from the Bill Boley collection quite a number of years ago just after Bill passed away. It came to me as Bill had him in some very ratty clothing and the face had been repainted but not detailed. He remained this way until yesterday when I decided to give him his finishing touches and redress him. The end result is he now looks they way Ken Spencer painted his figures and the new suit I think looks great.

The blending of the face paint and the details were what took the time. Ken Spencer painted the lines and eyelashes on his figures and they were not the quality of work done by Marshall but were very distinctive. If you look at the other Spencer figures in the Ventriloquist Central Collection which are all original you will see I captured Ken's style with this walking figure. I hope you agree with me that he is now much nicer to look at!!
