Page of drawings by Chaplin

If you have an extra $11,000 burning a hole in your pocket you can own this funny little page of sketches "Done by Charlie Chaplin" in London in 1921.

The page shows sketches of a bridge, the Little Tramp’s shoes, baggy pants and coat (‘?Me again?!!!’); another sketch of his shoes, cane, hat, and mustache ('me'); the face of the Tramp (‘still life’); a brush (‘Brush?’); three fish-like, intertwined shapes (‘?Fish?’); a match, and a tunnel.

More information here.

Signed photo with sketch


Chaplin inscribed the photo in French:

"A Monsieur Pierre, avec Plaisir et, Merci, Charlie Chaplin"

 which roughly translates to:

 "To Pierre, with pleasure and, thank you"
