Schuco Charlie Chaplin

This is rare boxed Schuco Charlie Chaplin. He is in exceptional condition. When wound up with a separate key, he spins around in circles and his cane rotates. He is made of tin-plate with a flocked face and felt clothes.

His box is the most charming part. On the lid is a handwritten French label - Saint Nicolas, apporte pour Miss Singer - Une surprise tres agreable! - 6.11.1930. Saint Nicholas day is the date that many European countries give their Christmas gifts, this falls on the 6th December, so this toy is date a month earlier.
