Ca1920 Schuco Walking Charlie Chaplin Tin Wind-up Toy In Its' Original Box:
Very rare and original, ca1920 Tin Wind-Up, Walking Charlie Chaplin Toy by Schuco in its' original box and in outstanding physical condition. This early, Tin Walking Charlie Chaplin measures approx. 8â€� tall and comes in its original paperboard box which measures approx. 2 5/8" by 6 3/4" by 2" deep.
Schuco made two versions of this toy, one has a flocked face with a fuzzy texture and the other is a lithographed tin face. This is the flocked face variation. This charming wind-up is cloth dressed with a celluloid collar and a metal cane and metal shoes. When wound, Charlie waddles forward and spins cane.
This rare and wonderful, ca1920, Schuco Walking Charlie Chaplin is in very good condition. It is 100% original and has never been repaired, repainted, touched-up, or restored in any way. His clothes are exceptionally well preserved - clean and crisp and intact with no damage or wear. The flocking on his face in intact and other than some very light soiling to Chaplin's face and some minor paint loss to his cane, the Toy is physically without other flaws. The Toy retains its original wind-up key and although the mechanism is working it is a bit touchy and sometimes need a little help by way of a spin of the cane to get the mechanism started. We would suggest perhaps a careful oiling of the mechanism by a professional toy restorer to make the mechanism run more smoothly.
The original Box is well preserved also - intact and sound with all side flaps present and strongly attached at the corner junctions. There is some light wear at the edges of the Box and some light soiling to the pastedown label on the lid but overall the Box is also very well preserved.
A very rare and wonderful, ca1920, Tin Wind-Up, Walking Charlie Chaplin Toy by Schuco in its original box and in outstanding physical condition and a fantastic addition to any Collection!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges and the "Detailed Seller Rating" Star System:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee.
We have NEVER requested response from our customers as we were taught that "fishing for compliments" was impolite but the new Detailed Rating System has put us in a rather tight spot. Most buyers are unaware that bases a monthly fee discount on a Seller's "Star" rating. A monthly average of "4.6 Stars" (in any one of the four "Star" categories) costs us approximately $400 in additional Fees - that's $400 above what we would pay if we had a "4.8 Star" average in all 4 "Star" categories!! As a consequence we hope you do not find us rude to ask that if you are happy with our items, our service, and our packing & shipping please be sure to use the "Star" rating system and remember that a "5 Star" rating is the only way we can qualify for 's fee reduction program. ,
