A Dr. Death puppet from David DeCoteau's fantasy horror Retro Puppet Master. The surgeon-like puppet, imbued with the spirit of puppeteer Duval (Vlad Dulea), is seen throughout the film as he and his fellow puppets listen to their master Andre Toulon (Guy Rolfe) relate a story from his past.
The skeletal puppet is made of resin with a wire armature, and is dressed in a vintage-style, light green surgical outfit. The head and arms are painted brown to resemble wood, and the teeth are painted white. The puppet shows paint wear on the head, arms and boots, exposing the resin underneath, and the hands show significant warping and tears. Dimensions: 40 cm x 17 cm x 10 cm (15 1/4" x 6 3/4" x 4")
Estimate: £2,000 - 3,000 M
