Tommy Knots Ventriloquist Figure


Today I have something very special I would like to offer to our ventriloquist community. Everyone loves Frank Marshall and one of his greatest creations was the Tommy Knots sailor figure. This fellow stood a tall 20″ and had Franks signature glass eyes and slot jaw. He came dressed as a sailor and was a great seller for Frank.

When Frank passed on Brian Hamilton acquired much of the Frank Marshall shop. In that were a few unfinished but dupli-carved Tommy Knots heads. Brian completed a few of these figures and today I am offering one of them for sale that is in pristine condition.

He is dressed in the sailor suit with the sailor hat and Brian even captured the Marshall paint on this little guy. His mouth works perfectly and if you open his mouth and look inside with a flash light you can see Brian’s card there.

As rare as Frank Marshall’s Tommy Knots figures are Brian’s are actually more scarce. He made very few of these completed figures. So jump on this one.

Perfect to use in walk around performance and a super collectible.
