Hand puppets, like this one from China’s Zhejiang region, have been a popular form of entertainment for centuries. In the late-19th/early-20th century this tiny robed gentleman probably entertained throngs of people as he strolled the courtyards of miniature palaces or rescued maidens from undesirable suitors.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
