Rare and Unusual Charlie McCarthy Clock

charilie mccarthy clock

Back in the 1930’s to 50’s the Gilbert Clock Company produced alarm clocks with Charlie McCarthy’s face with the mouth that opened and closed with the ticking seconds.

Most that we see are the standard alarm style clock done in a cream clock. They did come in red and blue too but most were cream.

Today I am happy to show you one of the rarest styles and that is the square alarm Charlie McCarthy clock. I have not seen another like this one and I hope you enjoy seeing it too.

Yes it is in the Ventriloquist Central Collection.

Ventriloquist Central is the brainchild of Dan Willinger and Steve Hurst. Dan is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Steve is a ventriloquist as well as builder of ventriloquist figures. He also has a background in sales, marketing, building websites and computers. Because they both love the art of ventriloquism, the website Ventriloquist Central was born. For more information about the website, go to: http://www.ventriloquistcentral.com

    I was curious about any internet mention of “Charlie McCathy” and googled it. Here is a beautiful photo owned by State Library of Victoria, in Australia of Edgar Bergen and “Charlie McCathy” http://www.slv.vic.gov.au/miscpics/gid/slv-pic-aab13490
