Quality antique Water sprite marionette 

This extraordinary, unique piece of history has found its way into our collection. This puppet has a movable jaw, webs between the fingers and pink cheeks. It is made of linden wood and its jacket is as high quality as if it was sewn for a person. With its original wooden hairstyle and beard, it will stand out anywhere. All materials (wood, textiles, metal) that were used to make this marionette are original.

František Šimek

František Šimek (1881-1949) learned the carving craft from his father. He created heads and whole marionettes either alone or with other Czech puppeteers. He also renovated marionettes for other puppeteers. The costumes were made by his wife. In addition to marionettes, he also made daily necessities and furniture and restored wooden sculptures in churches.
