Vintage 1930s Copper Clown and Top Hat Brooch
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
From the 1930s here is a brooch consisting of a clown head wearing a top hat, attached to a second pin made in the form of a top hat and cane. The clown has three glass beads anchored to his face with pins, two blue opaque ones that make up his eyes and a red transparent one that is his nose. The clown pin measures 2 3/8” by 2 1/4” in height from the top of his hat to the bottom of the bow at the right. The chain measures 6 1/4” in length.
The piece is in very good condition with no pronounced wear. It is unmarked, but documented in the book “Warman’s Costume Jewelry Figurals” as dating to the 1930s.
This is a fun piece - great addition to a jewelry collection!
