Signed Polcini soldier puppet pin pendant with a painted face. The pendant measures 5 1/2" long and 1 3/8" wide. It is suspended from 20" long chain with a spring ring clasp. This piece was from a line designed by Lee Menichetti for Polcini in 1972. According to a full page article in February of 1972 Opera News magazine Lee designed these pendant puppets after both operatic and nonoperatic characters. Nonoperatic characters included this soldier from the Nutcracker ballet. The pin pendant is in excellent condition. I will send a copy of the 1972 Opera News article on Lee Menichetti's puppets to the buyer of this piece.
