I was told when I asked how old this doll was that the woman felt sure it was the 50's but maybe the 60's. The clown stands not quite 21" and with hat about 22-1/2". The clown is meant to wear his hat, which is held in place by a hat pin. There are no marking of any kind for identification.
The face is jolly looking at first and then after having it for awhile it gets kind of creepy. It is made of stuffed and stitched cloth, with the exception of the 4-1/2" plastic face. Creepy/Jolly depending on it's mood this is a special fellow.
In the area of the small of the back is where what my wife and I have come to agree on, is a wooden box where two kinda like jingle bells make noise as they roll and bump into the sides of the box when shaken. The right arm right hand at tip needs a few stitches, and the overalls could use washing. Having said that this is a way cool blast from the past.
If you can give just one clown respect, or love them, then the Sky's the limit. Don't let Santa take him to the island of misfit toys. He is one of a kind I think and if I end up keeping him, so be it. But if you can't make room in your house for him, the worst that happens is he keeps greeting me at the back door reminding me of cotton candy and sometimes chucky.
