    Antique American Indian Folk Art Puppet circa 1890 in Buckskin and Beads. A fully articulated 24" tall handmade puppet with hide buckskin clothing, beads and Victorian cloth highlights. Original paint on face and feathers. Found in Central Michigan. More properly called a marionette, as the figure moves on strings attached to a wooden X control bar. The oldest and most interesting folk art puppet I have found, but the technique certainly goes back centuries earlier.
