This old clown brooch features a three dimensional face, or head of a clown, with a bulbous gold specked yellow nose and two cabochon orangey eyes that seem to glow a times. The eyes do reflect some light, not a lot, just enough so that it seems that he is looking in different directions when moved.
His enameled hair is black with yellow accents. Within his mouth could be a golden tooth or his tongue? It does shine – view the second picture and you will see. This clown has a wide very pronounced smile. I haven’t come across this pin before. It’s definitely an attention getter and distinctively different.
As you can see there is a bit of wear on the front, but the back is in terrific shape. Measures 1-3/8” x 1-3/16”. Pin closure works very well.
