Hazelle's Marionette 810-Penny (1953-76) is -- along with Dick and Sally -- one of the standard players of the Hazelle's "Popular" line through three decades.  This one is exactly as she appears in the 1956 product brochure.  She is an upgrade to the one I have just like her in my collection.  Purchased June 23, 2015 online auction for $12.95 + $6.00 s&h.

Just wrote the seller:  Thought you might like to know...  This is No. 200 - Clown. He is listed in a mid to late-1930s Hazelle's brochure I have in my collection as "A comical white-faced clown."  He originally sold for $2.00 retail. You are right on the age range [1936-39]. You mentioned the box, well it received an honorable mention at the 1938 New York Toy Fair. Hope this helps.

HAZELLE'S MARIONETTE NO. 316-PIONEER was available in product brochures in 1956.  He might have been available as a special order item in the 1950s also.  I don't have this in my collection yet, because he usually sells for a little above my price level.

Hazelle's Marionettes Set No. 510 Topsy, Sambo & Clown. I have had this set for awhile -- some of my oldest puppets. But they have been on the shelf all this time, because I wanted to get some experience handling, untangling, and re-stringing, before I tackled these most valuable and rare (in this incredible condition) puppets in my collection.

HAZELLE'S MARIONETTES NO. 811-DICK, ALL AMERICAN BOY. Dick was marketed as a boy age 9 to 11 and came dressed in a cub scout uniform. The one I have with a baseball uniform does not appear in any catalog or product brochures I have in my collection. Because of that, and the fact that he has different hands with space between some fingers, I think he was a custom item, probably early 1960s. There are differences in the uniform over the years, but not major differences.

This is Hazelle's Beginner's Marionette No. 707-Dwarf. He was available only in the 1964 Hazelle's product brochure. Original retail price was $3.98. Here is the description from the brochure in my collection: "707 DWARF One of Snow White's companions (our Angel without wings.)" Other characters from the same series that used the same head and hands (with different paint and costumes) were 704-Pirate (1959-64, 1976) and 709S-Santa (available by special order 1960-64).

Not sure if hes a pirate or possibly the woodsman.

A couple of new frames to show off more product brochures from Hazelle's Marionettes. I have "catalogs" (as Hazelle's called them) from several years and products. But in order to frame them, I need two copies of the brochure so I can show the outside and inside. So this project has been rather slow. My goal is to collect two from each year so I can fill a wall with them. I won't even consider photocopies at this point. They have to be all original. These are 18x24 poster frames.
