This old planter could easily be used in a baby’s room to hold cotton swabs rather than a plant. The cute little clown has a nicely detailed face with a fun smile. He’s looks like he’s doing a hand stand with his legs arced over his head. He’s wearing a colorful jump suit, reddish orange on one side and yellow on the other, accented with blue dots and pom-poms. His hat is green and his ruffled collar and cuffs are trimmed with gold and he’s wearing black shoes. Next to him is a little drum that acts as the planter. It appears that part of the color is under glaze and part is cold painted. On the bottom it is stamped; Orion - Made in Japan and I would assume is from the 1950’s.
The clown measures about 4” to the top of his shoes and the planter portion measures about 1 7/8” tall by almost 2 ½” in diameter. It is in very good condition with minimal wear and no damage.
