Tag says: "Hi! I am a hand-made wooden puppet-on-a-string from Ursula Gehlmann workshop. I have been created from wood with utmost care. My clothes have been sewn in costly detailed work with all the available love of precision. I am about 40 centimeters high and fully functioning. I am much esteemed by hobbyists and collectors, because I am an original decoration for every lodging. The original signature of my creation at the end of this certificate testifies that I am a genuine Ursula-Gehlmann puppet-on-a-string. Ursula Gehlmann." The figure stands 16 inches (40 cm) tall.
