This marionette of a drunk was designed around 1940 by the graphic artist Jan Benda. It is made of quality original materials.
In the case of the sale of this puppet, we dedicate half of the amount collected to the development of PUP - Puppet University Prague
It is a great honor for us to present you this comical marionette. It is completely carved from wood and decorated with a beautiful jacket with metal buttons. This fellow's nose is big and swollen to entertain the audience as much as possible. His shoes are also made of wood, although they create the perfect illusion of fabric. Notice also his rich mustache and beautiful shirt with embroidery.
Jan Benda (1897-1967) was a Czech graphic artist, draftsman and later a puppeteer. After being wounded on the Italian front, he was employed at the Archaeological Institute in Prague. He then began working with various Czech puppeteers to design and process marionettes, which he also modeled. Some of his marionette designs were processed by the company of the Czech carver Josef Kalous.
Hi Katerina, I wanted you to know that Robert received his Marionette today, he loved it and couldn't get over how well it was made and how good the packaging was on it. I want to thank you, from the start it was enjoyable working with you and I will be sure to tell everyone how easy you made it. You never know when you order items from such a long ways away.
