Mint Effanbee Charlie McCarthy Ventriloquist Toy Figure


If you go on the big auction site every so often you will find an Effanbee Charlie McCarthy for sale but they always have cracks, and chips, paint loss and moth holes in the clothes, missing the pearl buttons on the shirt and vest and missing the silk bow tie.

Today I am giving someone the chance to acquire one that is as close to perfect as you will find, without having to spend $1000.00 or more. Yes that is right. In mint condition these Charlie McCarthy figures will bring from $1000 to 1800 dollars.

This figure has no chips, no cracks no paint rubs and the clothing is in perfect condition having all the pearl buttons and silk bow tie. The tuxedo is also in crisp mint condition. The only thing is that the rubber band to make the mouth work is gone having deteriorated over the years. I does still have the original string and ring pull. I also included a vintage top hat that fits him perfectly although it is not original. The back of the neck is signed” Edgar Bergen’s Charlie McCarthy an Effanbee Product”
