Legendary props used by Charlie Chaplin are to be auctioned





The iconic bowler hat and cane used by Charlie Chaplin are to be auctioned later this year in a Rock n Pop & Film Memorabilia sale. The trademark items used during the comic’s 22-year career are to be sold at Bonhams in Knightsbridge on November 16th. The props were used by Chaplin in the guise of the Tramp and selected by him in the Keystone Studio costume department in Hollywood in February 1914. The 32-inch long bamboo cane and bowler hat, stamped with the manufacturer’s and original studio label, are expected to sell for £100,000-150,000.
