    Description

    Three Stooges Hand Puppet Group (c. 1940s). Those masters of mayhem, the Three Stooges - Moe, Larry, and Curly - are represented by these wacky vintage hand puppets. Each Stooge has a head made of painted composition material, with a felt body and hands. Each measures approximately 11" tall and 8" across with arms spread wide. Moe's head has come loose from the green felt body (could be reattached), the head has a crack that extends down from behind the ear, and the felt hands are stained. Larry and Curly have only minor felt stains and head cracks. The finger insert within Curly's head has come loose, and is missing in Moe. Other than these small concerns, the set displays well, and is in overall Very Good condition. These are not listed in Hake's. With their highly detailed faces, we believe they are older than most Stooges memorabilia that dates from the 1950s' TV revival. From the Estate of John McLaughlin.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
