SOLD! 1930's WPA project grotesque faced paper mache marionette. These puppets were created in conjunction with the Works progress administration to provide education materials to the school system. They were issued with scripts to be coordinated in plays for children. This is a fairly large scale puppet, the body is approx 9" long, with the fabric legs our friend stands right around 15-16" tall. Has the original "Keystone" shaped WPA label on back and hand controls with strings. The only condition issue is a very hard to to see cut from one of the control strings to the body of the puppet. Great piece with lots of history.
