Mystery Marionette!

If you're a collector or marionette artist, I have one for you! 100% wooden - hand carved - made the classic pin jointed style of yesteryear. Original hand paint job. Puppet: 16 inches tall; 24" overall length to control bar. This puppet was found and purchased at an estate auction. I have no idea of it's age or history. The skill of the carving is truly professional.
There are no indentifing markings of any type on this puppet so your guess is as good as mine as to whether it was ever used in a famous production or handled by a famous name artist. The mystery is fascinating. What a delightful collector's piece! I have no other similar pieces. This is one-of-a-kind. Very good condition. If you know anything about this piece, or can make an educated guess, I'd love to hear from you. It is obviously someone's replication of Mickey Mouse, but what's the rest of the story?
