I found this puppet in a pile of trash . I've done some research , and I think it's an old punch puppet. Can anyone tell me anything about it?

    Could it be a cane topper?

    I guess I should have added that its attached to a long stick with a ball at the end of it. I'm pretty sure it's a stick puppet! Thanks anyhow!

    He is Punch from Punch and Judy . Called Puppet on a stick . Very nice ! Hard to date him since they were made over long period of time and still make them . He looks to have age to him maybe 1950's ? Hard to tell with out holding some things in person :-)
