Federico Fabbrini (unknown)

Frank Ballard’s brother met Fabbrinni while on business in Italy. When Fabbrini learned of Frank’s work as a puppeteer in the United States, he sent these 6 inch tall ceramic figures as a gift.

The figures, each one unique, is hung in a decorative wooden box for display. They are not intended to be used as a puppet.
