Morante:  Charlie Chaplin.

A 1920 Charlie Chaplin mascot by Morante and signed by the artist.  This heavy nickel bronze mascot stands 145mm high.  It is certainly the very finest French piece ever produced that depicts the loveable clown.  It has great Art Deco styling, with a wonderful humour and pathos.  Notice the splendid touches of detail, like his battered hat and famous walking cane.
