Great Chuck Jackson Trixie Ventriloquist Figure


One of the great builders of wood carved ventriloquist figures was Chuck Jackson. He took over Maher Studios from Lovik and sold figures on his own and also in partnership with Bill Nelson. You can see a great video of Chuck working his craft with this link

This figure is a fully loaded figure done in basswood and is one of his best creations. This Trixie figure is a full 40 inches tall and has the following functions; slot jaw, crossing eyes, side to side self centering eyes, winkers and blinkers and raising eyebrows. The paint is all original and is in near mint condition except for a very few hairline cracks due to age. The body is cast neoprene with wooden bottom board and the figure sits quite nicely on its own. The hands are also the cast small McElroy hands which Maher offered at the time.

This figure still has the original paperwork with it that states it is a Trixie figure and it’s number and it also has the owners guide by Mr. Jackson as well.

I have shown this figure dressed as a male as well and it works so this figure can cross either side.

This is a great basswood figure and it can be yours….
