Beats Blackpool - Punch&Judy puppets that graced Cannes on the Cote d'Azur in the 1960's for sale.<br />
<br />
A collection of vintage puppets made for a French Punch and Judy puppeteer over 50 years ago have emerged for sale.<br />
<br />
The 10 papier mache pieces include wife-beating Mr Punch, his long-suffering partner, the crocodile, the policeman and the judge.<br />
<br />
The collection is also made up of five lesser-known characters that feature in the seaside show.<br />
<br />
These are the Chinaman, the black man, the pirate, the chauffeur and the skeleton.
