Ventriloquist Central Collection Video Series – Alfred LeMare, Oldest Figure in Collection

you tube ventriloquist central collection alfred lemare figure

Here’s a video showing an Alfred LeMare ventriloquist figure. It’s the oldest figure in the Ventriloquist Central Collection. In today’s collector world of ventriloquist figures there are a few very rare figures and one is the Alfred LeMare.

This builder worked in the 19th century and created his figures of both paper mache and wood. The example you see here is 100% original having never ever been worked on or restored. Even the clothing on him is original to this figure.

In the video I talk about how I can’t show you the controls, but if you look on the website page, you’ll see pictures of what I’m talking about.
