A very rare Victorian wood marionette with articulated limbs. Hand-painted paper has been pasted to the wood and has eroded in some areas over time. Distress throughout gives this piece a beautiful patina. Verso is a hook for hanging and a string that can be pulled to move the limbs.

The show won him a BAFTA and made him one of the most well known industrialists in recent history. He became chairman of The Economist in 1989.
