This marionette of a tender girl was created in the years 1870-1880 by puppeteer Josef Allesy. Quality materials from that time were used in the production of the marionette.
In the case of the sale of this puppet, we dedicate half of the amount collected to the development of PUP - Puppet University Prague
One of the marionettes from this puppeteer's workshop is this beautiful girl. Her precisely hand-carved hair and face are made of wood, as is the rest of her body. Notice her beautiful dress with a satin ribbon and black lace that complement her tender look. Beautiful brown eyes seem to look directly into your soul.
Josef Allesy (1810-1894), born Gianpiero Alessi, is of Italian descent. He came to Bohemia around 1830 and worked there as a carver and conservator in churches. His marionettes were extremely anatomically elaborated with very good mobility and in the second half of the 19th century they gained extraordinary popularity with many Czech puppeteers.
Thank you for all your advice and help! Guys at Czech Marionettes are really masters of what they do. I have visited them in their studio and got my Skeleton there. Will buy more professional stuff there.
I was surprised by how easy and fun it is to operate. The controls and strings are straightforward, making it easy to create various dance movements. For its size, the puppet is very compact and can be comfortably carried in a small backpack. If you're looking for a simple yet entertaining and nice marionette, this marionette is a fantastic choice.
