Type SS Pirate Woman
Type SS Pirate Woman, a rarely seen puppet, 1950's era.
She is in good condition.
I suspect the felt waistcoat is not original, this puppet was bought from a collector who had bought from ebay, I usually only buy from original sources.
The waistcoat looks to me to be home made, I nearly removed it but the buyer can decide for themselves. It doesn't sit right.
Other than that, she is good, only tiny paint loss on her nose.
Headscarf is faded.
She has hooped rings in her ears.
The black hair is crepe type rather than fur.
She has the wooden toggle type boots,black painted and the style used only for the Russian, Pirate and early Gypsy puppets.
Box is not original to the puppet.
