This week we are listing for sale a TERRIFIC collection of original vintage stage used puppets from the Paul Mesner Puppet Theatre in Kansas City. These are true works of art that delighted children for three decades. Whether you are a folk art collector, monster collector, oddities collector or have a connection to the Mesner Theatre, there is something for everyone! We have nearly 100 pieces for sale, each one hand crafted and painted and sewed by hand, with love.
Please look at the photos carefully. All of these puppets were used in stage shows and have general stage wear and tear. All of these puppets were for various period of times in storage. These were made by hand, often with available materials and so compositionally they vary.All of the puppets will take some work to get them back into shape for the stage. For display they might only need some minor stitching, steaming, washing to get them in display shape. We tried to show them the best we could in our photos but we are happy to answer specific questions. Some puppets have actions that may be impaired or non-functioning due to age, condition or damage.
Some of these puppets depict stereotypical characters. We understand some customers may find them offensive.
