This is one of the vast collection of Sue Hastings marionettes/puppets. Sue Hastings (May 10, 1884 – 1977) was an American puppeteer known for popularizing the ancient art of puppetry in the 1930s and 1940s. She was a protégé of Tony Sarg. She was known for her large collection of marionettes, which she made with her team of assistants.that survived the fire and the termites that eventually sadly destroyed most of her wonderful unique work.For some twenty years the Sue Hastings Marionettes were one of North America's largest puppet companies. During the 1930's, as many as a dozen troupes were on the road and the stock of puppets exceeded two thousand. Performances ranged from socialite parties to Broadway shows, from commercial promotions to the Chautauqua circuit, from performing at the White House to running permanent theatres at several world's fairs. This detailed study by Dorlis Grubidge reveal the remarkably successful puppetry entrepreneur, Sue Hastings.

I'm adding some pictures of the trunks that she and her company traveled with just for your enjoyment and to support the genuity of these items.

THE TRUNKS ARE NOT PART OF THE SALE.  I'm just selling  THE FASHIONETTE(?) BOY HANSEL (?) MARIONNETE. It is made of composition, fabric, wood. He is wearing a very nice hat and black shoes(please see pictures 11 and 12). His face is beautifully detailed. No control. I am selling he in AS-IS condition. PLEASE SEE PICTURES.

Almost all my vintage Sue Hastings marionettes are 10" or more. This one is about 15 1/2".

All my Hastings marionettes, trunks, marionettet's/puppets traveling bags, furniture, props ,etc. are for sale in AS-IS condition.  All my vintage/antique marionettes/puppets are for sale in their original condition. No repairs has been made to any of them.PLEASE SEE PICTURES.I thank you for your interest in seeing my treasured items.
