The chapter examines the global impact of Paul Pry, who had reached as far as Australia by 1840. It investigates the immensely energetic material culture which was created by and in turn sustained the stage success. Detail is provided on the naming of ships, stagecoaches, racehorses and other animals and flowers, public houses, the production of figurines, snuff boxes and other consumer items bearing his name, and his exploitation for popular song (including ‘Cherry Ripe’) and many forms of popular literature. It concludes with a discussion of objects as actors, with their own identity but in constant dialogue with other objects and the meanings they embodied.
