Marionettes’ heads

Most of the marionette heads displayed here are part of one order. The examples marked with „ rpl.gif, 48B “ have been made according to precious originals from the first half of the 20th century.

The original heads were about 70-150 mm tall, while the newly made heads are larger and they are designed for marionettes about 70-80 cm tall.

Like the originals, the replicas are carved from linden wood.
