Carved wood set of 8, Germany.  18" high.  These came with a provenance (see the 1934 birthday party clipping) dating them at 1890.  The group includes the basic characters:  Punch, Judy, the Ghost, the Devil, Jack Ketch, Jim Crow, the Constable,  and another figure.(?)  Though the Devil and the Ghost were not in common use in the actual puppet shows by this time, toymakers could hardly resist including two such appealing and scary subjects.
