This antique marionette is carved from linden wood. The nobleman has beautifully carved and painted beard and hair, pink cheeks and beautiful blue eyes with a sincere look. His orange robe is decorated with lace, buttons and a nice tassel. We are excited that this marionette has found its way into our collection.

Karel Krob

Karel Krob (1904 - 1974) originally trained as a shoemaker, but from a young age he was fascinated by the puppetry world. That is why he also devoted all his free time to carving and making marionettes. He continued the tradition of Czech puppeteers, because he carved marionettes as he remembered them from the marionette shows of his childhood. Initially, he made marionettes only for the pleasure of his children, acquaintances and friends. Later, he carved marionettes for puppet ensembles, including the Spejbl and Hurvínek Theater. Today, his works are represented in a number of museum and private collections and puppet ensembles.
