Rickie Tik by Frank Marshall

Frank Marshall was a good promoter for sure. He made sure he had a ventriloquist figure for every pocket and this was the figure that he did market towards young folk. I have two Rickie Tiks in my collection and I can tell you they are a superb smaller size figure and were also used by the pros.

Clifford Guest used to chase his figure around the stage and that figure was a Rickie Tik. As matter of fact I believe Clifford’s Rickie is now owned by Dennis Alwood and is pictured on our page of Frank Marshall figures and their current owners.

I hope you enjoy looking at this great ad which Frank ran on the back of his catalogue and also in the Oracle Magazine back in the 1950’s.
