(Sid & Marty Krofft TV, 1969) An original Talking Candle character puppet from Dr. Blinky's house in H.R. Pufnstuf. Constructed of foam latex, resin, aluminum, styrofoam, and repurposed rope, the candle portion is painted in smoky tallow hues and the stand is painted and finished to appear as ornate bronze metal. Created by Sid and Marty Krofft and used in the classic psychedelic children's series, this piece was originally sold as lot 34 in the historic Dove Brothers' "50 Years of Sid and Marty Krofft" auction, on August 23, 1998, along with numerous other iconic and imaginative pieces from the Kroffts' career. Measuring 15.5" tall and 9" in diameter, the piece is in production used good condition. While most of the foam latex remains supple, there is some cracking and flaking to the reverse of the candle. The stand exhibits some paint chipping and surface loss.
