TYPE SL MOTHER DRAGON
Type SL Mother Dragon with long fangs rather than the shorter type of later models.
One fang has broken as seen.
The paintwork is very good. The felt wings lift up and down with an elastic band.
The jaw also lifts open with an elastic band to the front screw eye.
Both elastic bands have perished and been replaced as often is the case.
She is made from a moulded composition body with wooden beads for her tail and limbs. She has a brightly coloured pink stomach. A splodge of pink paint is on her leg from the original time of painting.
She has a good felt tongue and the wings are also good.
The elastic bands enable the wings to fly and the jaw to drop open.
Box is stamped with a red stamp, it is in good condition. This is the early box and the puppet could have had a 1963 label underside the wing but it has been removed it it was there.
