Pinxy's Charlie McCarthy

George Pinxy Larsen was a contemporary of Frank Marshall, Ken Spencer and the other ventriloquist figure builders of the golden era. All of the makers were influenced by the popularity of Edgar Bergen's Charlie and Mortimer figures.

This full size figure is a wonderful creation in the likeness of Charlie McCarthy and he has moving mouth and side to side glass eyes. I have this Charlie dressed in a sporting outfit instead of the usual tuxedo as we have all seen Charlie dressed in a multitude of outfits throughout his career.

I have him sitting with the Pinxy Mortimer and they certainly enjoy each others company.
