A Frog Marionette made by Pelham Puppets

As part of Pelham's SL 63 range the Frog Marionette was first introduced in 1963. The model ran until 1989 but over the time it went through slight changes of design. The original 1963 design had rounded toes while post 1965 model was slightly more oval until finally from 1975 the feet were entirely flat.

The marionette on display in the Museum is the third iteration.
