Emlyn can be seen from 1.04 minutes in. Wonderfully sculpted by the team behind Spitting Imag e , with great character as these puppets often did. A great example of this classic TV programme and in good condition considering its age and use. Of course, like all TV props, production wear and tear is to be expected. The inside foam is starting to crumble somewhat, however the outside latex appears to be stable and should last some time, if looked after properly.There are some subtle scuffs/ grey marks to some areas of paint work, a few small minor (cosmetic) holes on the latex (see photos) on the underside of the nose, lips and ears. Some of the foam has come away from the inside of the head.
Overall very reasonable condition considering its age and use (on an actual TV programme) - you can tell this puppet has been very well looked after over the years and stored properly. The latex has hardened with age, so it isn't flexible as it once once - it isn't advised to use the mouth/ operate the puppet and it should be used as a collectors piece. Any physical use of the puppet is at the buyers own risk.
This should be used as a collectors piece and cared for appropriately by a serious collector. No torso, hands or costume is included in this sale, just the puppet head itself.This puppet comes with a certificate of authenticity from one of the best prop dealers. A real piece of TV history and an awesome authentic prop. Used on an actual television production. Any questions, feel free to get in touch.
