Charlie Chaplin hat and cane to go under hammer

Charlie Chaplin’s iconic bowler hat and cane are to go under the hammer in Los Angeles this weekend, as part of an auction which also includes a John Lennon drawing of himself and Yoko Ono. The hat and cane, trademark of Chaplin’s Little Tramp character, are in “remarkable condition” and are estimated to go for between USD 40,000 and USD 60,000 at the sale by auction house Bonhams on Sunday.

Legend has it that Chaplin came up with the tramp persona and wardrobe spontaneously one rainy afternoon in February 1914, seizing various wardrobe items in a communal male dressing room at a Hollywood studio.AFP
