A Charlie McCarthy ventriloquist's dummy

This Charlie McCarthy ventriloquist dummy is an extremely rare and truly wonderful, very early example being made of composite not plastic (first quarter 20th century).

Charlie wears his original, short run outfit rather than the more common coattails. He is almost impossible to find in this model. 

This little charmer is in absolutely great order for his ripe old age and would be a superb addition to any collection.

We picked him up on an international buying trip in Kennebunkport, Maine, USA.

We were sad when we sold him the first time round, but he's come back to us at last! He had been in one true connoisseur's collection prior to that and now he can be yours. 



All approximate

47cm head to toe


Condition: Where there are specific points to note we will detail these as far as possible but please be aware that all our items have wear commensurate with age and are as seen in the photographs. If you require any specific information please do not hesitate to get in contact. Charlie's jaw movement is in excellent order.
