This colorful old noisemaker is a tambourine made of tin with a large clown face on the front. The clown reminds me of Red Skelton with his wild red hair and little yellow hat. The side is made of a strip of tin that has partial images of clowns and balloons. There are also three sets of cymbals on the side that make a ringing clamor when shaken. It is only marked; Made in U.S.A. within a circle with no company name. I believe this was probably made in the 1960’s.
It measures about 7 1/8” in diameter, excluding the tin cymbal disks that stick out beyond the edge, by 1 ¼” thick. It is in nice condition with good color and gloss and minor scuff and scratch wear. There is some paint loss to the rolled outer edge.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
