This old crib toy looks like a clown and would have undoubtedly brought much delight dangling over a baby’s crib. It appears to be made of catalin and bakelite pieces strung together with its original cord with two beads at the top. It's has a simplistic form with painted facial features and painted buttons. There is a disk topped with a bead that looks like a hat. These were often made by Tykie Toy or other companies that made novelties for babies and this one appears to be shown in a 1947 Tykie Toy catalog as #70 Peepo the Clown. Literature from the company says these were made of Catalin and Loalin.
It is in good condition with minimal scratch wear to the plastic and minor chips to the painted features. The figure, to the top of the hat bead measures about 4 ¾” in length and the overall measurement is about 7” long with an arm span of 2 5/8”.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
