CHARLIE CHAPLIN

CHARLIE CHAPLIN. One-of-a-kind handwritten poem (Shakespeare it ain’t!) on an off-white sheet, about 7.5 x 4.25, singing the praises of an unknown gentleman apparently named Schuyler. In full: “When pleasure seems high/you know you’re with Schuy/and we all know why?/Cause Schuy’s a great guy/Aloha to you – but not a good bye/Charlie Chaplin/July 15th 1927, “ and adding a sketch of himself as the Little Tramp. Handsomely double matted and framed to an overall size of about 21.5 x 13. Fine condition, with two tiny gouges in the paper, affecting two letters of the poem, and several extremely faint vertical bends. This piece was reportedly first sold by Profiles in History in 1987 and was in the possession of a single collector since then.
