SHE'LL CAST A SPELL ON YOU STRING WITCH PUPPET

Created sometime after the 1960's, this green-faced witch was made by Pelham Puppets, a famous British toy company established in 1948.

Pelham's green-faced witch puppets were part of the SL 63 range. SL refers to String Luxury puppets, while 63 is the year that this line went into production. The green-faced witch puppet was made up until 1989.

They came in a variety of styles, but always with the trademark green face and black cloak.

While the witch puppet is no beauty by traditional standards, she has a face full of character which suggests that where ever she is, mischief won't be far away.

With her huge eyes and expressive grin, this witch puppet is wonderfully photogenic and is an ideal prop for a themed photo shoot.

She is also a must-have puppet for any toy collector and would be the ideal present for any one born on the 31st of October. She's also great to have fun with at Halloween parties.

In good vintage condition, the witch is fully functional with just small signs of wear. Her witchy strings are intact and tangle free. She has no box.

The Fairytale Bit: "The Witch" is a traditional Russian fairytale, collected by Andrew Lang and included in his "Yellow Fairy Book". It tells the tale of twins abandoned in the woods who are then found by a very wicked witch who puts them to work. With the help of woodland creatures and their magic, the twins find a way to escape. Find out how they do it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Witch_(fairy_tale)
