Subject: [Puptcrit] Have you heard of Febs Figures: Punch and Judy?


Has anyone heard of Febs Figures and a possibly commercial line of 
puppets they may have created in the 20's or so? A man brought us a 
suitcase of Punch figures stamped with this manufacturer's mark. They 
are carved of basswood and include Punch, Judy, the crocodile, devil, 
etc. They were supposedly used by a puppeteer at Barnum & Bailey.

Any guesses or knowledge of a company that made Punch puppets?
