This is one of the coolest pieces of chalkware I have ever seen. This vintage chalkware bank of a circus clown is absolutely HUGE.. standing a magnificent 27" high. It has a slot in the back for coins. The detail on this guy is so charming. The artist made intricate lace ruffled sleeves that have little holes lending realism to the outfit. His face is charming and he is very colorful, beautifully painted. One can't help buy smile when you see this clown. Condition is good with typical paint flakes here and there which are easily touched up. Overall great vintage condition with no major damage. Very very rare to find a bank of this size. It reminds me of a couple chalkware banks (carnival art) that I inherited from my Grandmother. They were from the 1930's.
