John Carroll Tommy Knots Ventriloquist Figure

john carroll tommy knotts 001

John Carroll was a figure maker out of New York and he created some nice wood carved figures one of which was used by Vicki Taylor and the figures name was Ronnie. You can see that figure in the Ventriloquist Central Collection.

John also made the Tommy Knots style figure which was made popular by Frank Marshall. I am pleased to show you that figure now. The face is just a bit different with a bit wider nose and placement of the eyes.

This one has the paper inside the head that says Roy Douglas from New York and Roy used figures made by John Carroll. The most famous figure by Carroll that Roy used was the 2 headed figure. Roy also sold John Carroll figures.

This one stands 18″ tall and has slot jaw only and is still retains its original crepe hair. Marshall just painted the hair.
