Tiny Frank Marshall Ventriloquist Figure


A couple of weeks ago it was fun to show you a small Frank Marshall figure which fooled me upon purchase and receipt. If you missed that blog click here.

After I posted that blog I had quite a few that asked if I would show him in his usual form on my web site so to accommodate all those who asked here are pictures of this little fellow undressed showing his body, his hand shaker mechanism and his functions on the head stick.

He has slot jaw, side to side self centering eyes and right eye winks. He has the chop stick lever for the mouth but this guy has a ball to pull for the winker. These controls are all original as to how Marshall did them. No changes or repairs. Even the cords are original. The paint and wig and clothing is all original as well except for the white shirt and bow tie which I put on him. The tie is from the 1950’s.

This Marshall is a prize for sure and being soooo small makes him kind of unique. I hope you enjoy looking at him.
