Antique or vintage pair of painted papier mache clowns. These primitive jester toys are folk art figures. These two guys have been friends forever and complement each other well. They look like clowns taking break during their working time. 9.5 inches tall, made in press molds of papier mache pulp. Both have wonderful crackled painted faces and exaggerated facial expressions that nonetheless look real and human. Unusual and simply delightful. I believe these are French, from the 1920's but there are no markings. Wooden base is not included.
