I notice nobody has replied to your posting. I hope that perhaps you have had some luck either by private message or by email, both of which can be done from this board. But if you haven't had any response you might have more luck by breaking the collection in smaller lots. For example someone may well be looking for a Punch frame, but not interested in the puppets, or vice versa.
Also so many of the puppets are just adapted children's plastic toys and I doubt if any Punchmen will really want those.
There are two or three proper carved puppets although some have had their value greatly reduced by someone adding plastic dolls hands to replace the carved wooden hands that would have been part of the puppets when Joe made them.
I think because of these things £450 may put a lot of people off. Conversely I think that if you split them into smaller lots you might actually be able to get more than £450.
However maybe you have already managed to sell them, and I'm quite wrong. In which case I'm delighted.
It's good to squawk!
