Details

Difficult to find, Patty the Marionette: The New Skating Sensation was made by the Peter Puppet Company in the 1940s. Patty's head with face, hands, and shoes are made of a composite material and painted, there are no nicks or scratches. Her blond yarn hair and delightful mix of clean, unfaded, (no rips or tears) clothing fabric make her quite the hipster, including her head scarf. Unfortunately, she will have to skate on one foot, she obviously lent one of her skates to a friend and they never returned it! The puppet strings are original, not tangled, attached properly; functioning. Everything about her is endearing. The control is cardboard is in decent condition. She is in excellent vintage condition with the exception of the missing skate. Patty would be a great piece around which a collection is built, or an excellent addition to an existing collection. This marionette has been in our collection since the mid-1980s.

This vintage item is pre owned and normal wear is to be expected. Imperfections will be listed and photos taken to represent the item's condition at time of sale. We may overlook an occasional small flaw. Please contact me if you have any questions. This item is intended for final sale.

Today we received a convo from the buyer. We were stunned. It was the first convo since the purchase and the buyer’s cancelation four minutes later. We did not question the request for cancellation, we understand what can sometimes be an impetuous purchase. We immediately refunded the buyer. We followed all the proper protocol. We were equally disappointed yesterday with the buyer’s negative review. We certainly don't feel it is deserved. We responded to the buyer’s convo by providing not only a verbal explanation but screen shots of her purchase and quick cancellation. We told her the piece was available. I asked her to reconsider her negative review. Unfortunately, nothing to date. We are thrilled when a piece finds new purpose, or place, with someone equally impassioned by its spirit. Peace.
