Here is a nice example of a Frank Marshall Ventriloquist dummy. Frank carved some of the most well known ventriloquist dummies in history including, Jerry Mahoney, Danny O’Day, Farfel and some even say Charlie McCarthy. Frank was responsible for creating the look that most people picture when they think of a typical wood carved ventriloquist dummy. This one was used by Jimmy Fitzgerald in the late 30’s until his retirement.  He is now in my collection and is a great piece.
