This antique marionette is a truly unique piece. This mage stands out in an orange robe made of shiny fabric, his cap is made of real fur and velvet, and his expression is infinitely optimistic. His hair and beard are a real rarity, as they have been preserved in excellent condition, which usually does not happen with non-wood hair. Get it in your collection and it will brighten up even the grayest day.
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.
Hi Katerina, I wanted you to know that Robert received his Marionette today, he loved it and couldn't get over how well it was made and how good the packaging was on it. I want to thank you, from the start it was enjoyable working with you and I will be sure to tell everyone how easy you made it. You never know when you order items from such a long ways away.
