The Amazing Dancing Charlie Illusion

As it says on the envelope, the pin jointed cardboard figure ‘can be made to dance on the floor, table or chair at your command’. British made, with original envelope. This item is similar to N1408, but for the fact that the envelope is made from thick card and there is a reference, possibly a patent number, in the bottom right-hand corner of the envelope.
