This special One-of-a-Kind Charlie Chaplin prototype model  and AP #1 Jackie Coogan Set includes the display backdrop. This special piece comes accompanied by a bound certificate of authenticity personally autographed by John & Susan Wright. 

Charlie Chaplin in The Kid stands 17 inches tall without his trademark bowler. 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 in a true likeness and hand painted and the wig is styled of the finest imported mohair.

Extensively researched for the utmost in authenticity, this One of A Kind Charlie Chaplin costume is distinctive from the first RJW Charlie Chaplin & Scraps edition previously produced.  It includes a short-sleeved shirt with a starched collar and miniature tie. The detailed  vest waistcoat features a distinctive miniature 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 swallow-tail coat is tailored of fine worsted wool with working pockets. The Little Tramp's iconic 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. 


Faithfully based on the beloved character in the title role of "The Kid" our Jackie Coogan 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.
