We are pleased to announce the addition of "Jackie Coogan" to our exciting group of dolls based on classic Hollywood Legends. Jackie Coogan (1914-1984) was an American actor and comedian who began his movie career as a child actor in silent films. Charlie Chaplin's film classic The Kid (1921) made him one of the first child stars in film history. The 1921 silent film is Chaplin's first feature-length film and an acknowledged masterpiece.
Faithfully based on the beloved character in the title, "The Kid" stands 11 inches tall and is fully jointed at the neck, shoulders, hips, and knees 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, the Kid's period costume includes a cotton ribbed sweater, twill trousers with braces (suspenders), cotton socks, leather boots, and a wool tweed 'newsboy' cap. The deliberately oversized costume has been artistically distressed and aged with frayed edges, stains, holes and tears. No detail has been overlooked to bring this legendary film character vividly to life.
Charlie Chaplin in 'The Kid' stands 17 inches tall in perfect proportion to Jackie Coogan. He is fully jointed at the neck, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees and ankles and has a realistic molded felt torso and hands with individually sewn fingers. The molded felt character face has been finely modeled and hand painted and the wig is styled of the finest imported mohair.
Extensively researched for the utmost in authenticity, Chaplin's costume includes a short-sleeved shirt with a starched collar and miniature tie. The detailed waistcoat features a distinctive plaid fabric with cotton trim. The oversized trousers are made of custom-dyed 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, holes 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. As a final perfect accessory, Charlie holds his trademark bamboo cane hand crafted at the RJW workshop out of wood with hand painted detail.
Both Charlie Chaplin and Jackie Coogan in 'The Kid' are produced in a limited edition of 100 pieces each worldwide. The 'RJW' brass button is affixed to each piece as a lasting mark of identification and a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity is included inside the deluxe presentation box.
