Type LS Clown Unboxed
Type LS Clown from the Wonky period.
He has amazing painted eyes, typical of the wonky era.
There is a very slight hairline through the nose barely visible.
He has had to be re threaded with original wax thread as his head was off and a neck piece of bamboo was missing. So, the neck piece is not original to the puppet but would have been similar and might have had some face paint on it.
The romper had to be undone carefully to re assemble the puppet and this has been sewn up again at the back.
The romper is made from a thick striped material and is in good condition. The red ruff has minor damage at one side.
The felt hat is very thick and firm and is lose from where the waxed cord was knotted, it is easy to put a little hide glue to secure it if needed.
He has small lead hands.
The fur hair is aged.
Restrung to original T bar with blue wonky label on.
