Vintage HALLOWEEN Spun Cotton Ornament - Clown with Pumpkin Head Pick
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!
Over the years (about 30 or so) I have been collecting Vintage Christmas and Halloween – all items, all designs, all ages. Of course, having grown up in the 60s I am most partial to that era. Well, it’s time to clear a little room in my condo and those items I do not think I am going to use, I am going to put up on Ruby Lane. So up now……
AGE: C.1980 or so
ITEM: Purchased at an antique show a very long time ago in Los Angeles, here's a vintage holiday ornament - could be for Christmas but I think more for Halloween. It's a spun cotton ornament, a clown holding a plastic pumpkin pick. The Victorian die cut face is of a clown girl (at least I think it's a girl) and she is dressed in vintage burnt orange/green crepe paper and has gold Dresden embellishments. I can feel the wire underneath the cotton and one would think the piece would be poseable but I'm afraid that if any posing were done, the crepe paper outfit would tear. A gold string is at the back so that the piece can be hung anywhere.
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot. No maker identification.
NOTE: Everything always looks better in person than in my scans/photos.
SIZE: About 5-1/2" high x 2-5/8" wide.
FINAL COMMENTS: Pretty darn cute!
