This Cardinal Richelieu puppet is another proud Royal Court Collection member. He’s a hand painted and hand sewn marionette made in the Czech Republic. Magnificent decoration for your interior.
The puppets in this category represent the Czech tradition in puppet making. These are mostly small series cast puppets, which are then hand decorated by sewing and painting.
Everybody knows Cardinal Richelieu! Our Marionette has every aspect of Cardinal’s character and nature. He is a powerful, noble, and respectable clergyman with a big responsibility, and that’s exactly what you can read in his facial expression. Let's not forget however he has a greedy side to his nature and a hunger for power. He wears a typical red vestment with a white shirt and gold shoes. Notice the detailed work on the Cardinal’s accessories. A large gold chain with a cross around his neck and a roll of parchment in his right hand makes him look even more genuine. Each inch of Cardinal Richelieu Marionette is hand-sewn and hand-painted. Materials used for this puppet are mainly fabric and non-toxic paint for his face. He stands 16 inches tall. Cardinal Richelieu Czech Marionette is a real masterpiece that will definitely brighten your home!
