    I found this character in Adamstown, PA last fall. They told me it was an advertisement character, but I just can not find anything about it.
    Can someone help me?
    thank you

      What a great piece ! It sure looks like he is advertising some kind of grip but his base look like maybe the store made it vs factory . How tall is he ? I am thinking a store used grips figure and gave him name Beaky because of the hat . Interesting I love it . How tall is he ?

      16.25" tall painted composition figure on 7.75x7.75" plywood base. c. 1950s. Buttons on figure read "Grips." These were sneakers made by the Beacon Falls Rubber Footwear Co. of CT.

      Not a shoe, I found a pair of children's shoes that work great.
      Tomorrow I send photos
      You're from that area?
