There is much talk about Series 2 of The Crown which premiers on Netflix this Friday.
Some time ago, a researcher contacted me, she wanted to buy some puppets from the shop for the young Prince Charles to be playing with in a scene. She was concerned that the date of manufacture of the puppets from the company was correct for the year. She had decided on her choices and she made her purchases.
I am not sure if we will see these puppets but it would be fun if we did. She bought a Muffin the Mule, a White Poodle and a 1950's Boy. (I can't remember if it was an SS Type or LS Type) Evidently Prince Charles played with Pelham Puppets when he was young, is that so? I don't know.
I had forgotten all about it until I heard about the series again.
A teaser trailer is linked to below.
If anyone watches it, have a look out for Pelham Puppets in the nursery!
I'm Imogen from Norfolk, U.K. I have a love of interesting colourful vintage items, especially from the 1950's. Pelham Puppets are one of my strongest collecting areas. There is nowhere to buy vintage Pelham Puppets other than through internet auction sites and auction houses and I felt there was room for somebody to open a shop.
