|Mr. Punch at 300, 1962|
This figure of Mr. Punch was made by Waldo S. Lanchester for the Covent Garden Celebration of Punch's 300th birthday in 1962. Old Red Nose has held up well, I would say. Fifty-two years later, he looks just as good.
The carved wooden head on this figure was previously that of “Casper” (Kasperle—Punch’s German cousin) from Hohnsteiner puppets of Max Jacob, Germany.
