Willie revival

It's interesting - I won't see one of these vintage dolls come through my shop for several years and then I'll see several. This Spring I had three come to me for repair/upgrades in one 30 day period. You see the "before"and "after" of one job here.

I enjoy working on them as they take me back in my thoughts to the early days of Maher Studios when Fred and Madeleine Maher used these dolls as the primary source for figures sold by the Maher School of Ventriloquism when it was located Detroit, Michigan.

    It's very cool how you can take a 1930's/1940's dummy and make it such a pro style
