Here’s a video showing John Carroll’s Tommy Knots Ventriloquist Figure. 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.

Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to: http://www.ventriloquistcentral.com

I guess Knots head, whether by Marshall or by Carroll, was a one piece block of wood, and not smaller blocks glued together.
They were actually front and back then glued together.
I was in error when I said two heads on a stick in https://ventriloquistcentralblog.com/frank-marshall-tommy-knots-on-the-ventriloquist-marketplace/
