e are pleased to present "Charlie Chaplin" - the newest addition to our exciting group of dolls based on the classic Stars of Old Hollywood.

Charlie Chaplin (1889-1977) was an English comic actor, filmmaker, and composer who rose to fame in the era of silent film. Chaplin became a worldwide sensation through his screen persona "The Little Tramp" and is considered one of the most important figures in the history of the cinema.

A DOG'S LIFE is a 1918 American short silent film written, produced, directed and starring Charlie Chaplin. Long hailed as one of Chaplin's finest short comedies, the story presents the misadventures of a homeless man - Chaplin's iconic Little Tramp character - and a stray dog, 'Scraps', as they struggle to survive in the big city.

To mark this year's 100th anniversary of the release of the film, we are proud to introduce Charlie Chaplin - brought to life for the first time in the medium of molded felt! Faithfully based on the beloved "Little Tramp" character in the 1918 silent film, A Dog's Life, Charlie stands 17 inches tall and is fully jointed at the neck, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees and ankles, with the RJW wooden ball & socket jointing system. He has a realistic molded felt torso and limbs and hands with individually sewn fingers. The molded felt character face has been finely modeled in a true likeness with delicate hand painted features, and the wig is styled of the finest imported mohair.

Extensively researched for the utmost in authenticity, Chaplin's iconic "Little Tramp" costume includes one-piece period underwear, a short-sleeved muslin shirt and a detailed waistcoat made out of distinctive plaid fabric. The oversized trousers are made of custom-dyed corded twill fabric and are held up with detailed suspenders w/leather tabs. The fully-lined coat is tailored of fine worsted wool with working pockets. The entire costume has been artistically distressed and aged with frayed edges, stains and tears. Charlie's trademark bowler hat is made of all-wool felt and his hand-cobbled leather boots include patches and custom-made miniature shoelaces! No detail has been overlooked to bring this legendary film character vividly to life.

Scraps - Chaplin's canine co-star - is made of the finest custom-made mohair/wool plush with airbrushed markings. His neck features a ball & socket joint for expressive posing. Glass pupil eyes, inset whiskers and a molded leather nose add to his appealing realism.

Charlie Chaplin - A Dog's Life is produced in a limited edition of 100 pieces. Charlie Chaplin & Scraps, which includes the dog, is made in a separate edition of 50 sets.
