Reindeer Craft

Read the object story

Marionette puppet from the museum collection.

Marian Jenkins used to perform marionette puppet shows at children’s parties with her parents and sister in the late 1940s, early 1950s:

“My father set it all up. He carved, made them all himself. He made a stage, a platform we could stand on, painted it, all the scenery for the act.”
