Jeu De Massacre Fairground Figure

One of the finest examples of a late 19th Century fairground knock down figure we have had the pleasure to obtain, in the form of what resembles Charlie Chaplin. The Jeu de Massacre figure has a hand carved wooden head, torso, shoes, and flat pine hands. In its original cotton tuxedo style clothing and cast-iron hinges. This figure is of French origin and would typically have been used as a game to throw wooden balls at, the aim of the game is to knock over the head to gain a reward/prize. In our humble opinion this is one of the best examples we have ever seen, a museum object.

Size in inches: H 37” x W 10” x D 7”

Completely solid in structure and form, aged and worn surface as shown in the photos provided. An antique object that has stood the test of time, with worn/torn cotton clothing, loss of paint across all its surface, chip wooden areas and rust across the metal sections.

Period: 

1900
