These character figures used by Late Prof. Y. K. Padhye are from unknown figure makers from England in early 1920. 

Ramdas Padhye at the age of eight, performed his first professional ventriloquism show with these figures and thereafter made prolific use of vent and other puppets in stage performance, films, radio and T.V. ads.
