Black Forest German Wood Carved Charlie Chaplin Whistler Automaton Figure T707. Figural Karl Griesbaum Black Forest German wood carved Charlie Chaplin Whistler Automaton. Standing figure of Charlie Chaplain with a cane. No cracks, chips, or splits to the wood.
Stamped Germany on the movement and on the bottom of the figure. The mechanism does wind up and work but there is a piece missing that goes from the mechanism to his head, which would make his head move side to side. The bellow, while moving up and down as you engage the motor, only whistles when you manually move the lower section. Telling me that there are no holes in the cloth covering but somewhere it needs tweaked or adjusted. The back cover still partially shows the winding direction arrow, so you know it has not been played with very often in the last 80 or 90 years!!Size: The figure stands 13-1/2" tall x 4-1/2" wide x 2-7/8 deep. Please note: We are away from the office for the weekends. Questions may also be answered at that time.
