This puppet apparently escaped from his puppet master because his strings have been clipped. The metal ring on the top of his hat is still there, though, so new strings could be attached or he could just be enjoyed as a wall decoration, hanging from a dresser knob or Christmas tree.
Wooden cut out toy appears to be hand painted in bright colors of red, yellow, green, and black. Hat is wooden with a felt brim. Nose is plastic. Rosy cheeks and smile are painted. (He has a stain on his mouth, perhaps from eating ice cream when he broke free of his strings!)
Has two original stickers on back indicating Famo, made in Austria and other info, but printed in German so I can not translate it all.
Measures approx7-1/2" tall, 6.5" wide (when arms are outstretched), and 1" thick.
