Bob Wallace Wood Carver

 

Edgar Bergen later on in his career, had duplicates of his famous trio remade by a wood carver named Bob Wallace. He was from Los Angeles so he was not far from Edgar who was living in Hollywood at the time.

Wallace was a carver of store displays and his talent was superb. He did a great job of reproducing Charlie, Mortimer and Effie and in Edgar's hands you would never have known that they were not the original figures. Of course if you had the original figures side by side to the new carved figures there were differences.

Most of the reproduction Charlie heads that you will see for sale privately or publicly will be from castings off the Bob Wallace carved heads.

 

Many thanks to Ray Guyll for sharing this great piece
of Ventriloquial history to the vent community.
