~~RARE~~ Clown Bust collector cookie jar by Metlox. This is one of my favorite jars! Fun jar with a happy smile. No chips, no cracks, no hairlines. There might be a pin prick or two missing in the red paint but otherwise this jar is in great condition! Red colors are cold painted & usually any jar this old is missing a great deal. See below for description of cold paint. I really like the ruffled collar as seen by the side view. No jar made has such great detail. Not easily recognized since this jar had a foil label and usually was lost in time. If you don’t have a value guide to help identify this jar, it could be lost in a yard sale! This jar does have a greater portion of the original Metlox foil label showing. Great decorator piece in a child’s room with that sunny, happy clown smile! Also a very rare, hard to find Metlox jar.
This jar comes with a handmade cleaning cloth, too, to help protect the finish on your fine, aging collectables like this fine jar. We make them ourselves with very soft hand woven materials and these will last and last for you not just for this jar but any fine item like this, china, porcelain silverware, almost anything! Nice thing right now in addition to a free cleaning cloth is … he’s on SALE! Holidays are coming and these jars make great gifts. We can ship them to the anticipated recipient for you & send the tracking information to you so you can follow its journey!

I know you’re looking forward to owning this little guy and the best part is that he doesn’t require anything but a little dusting once in a while … that’s what the soft cloth is for!
**COLD PAINT IS APPLIED AFTER THE JAR HAS BEEN FIRED IN THE KILN. WHILE THE COLORS STAY ON THE JAR, AFTER A TIME THEY DO WEAR OR WASH OFF IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL. THIS IS WHAT THE CLEANING CLOTH IS FOR TO HELP PRESERVE THE COLD PAINT AS WELL AS THE AGING FINISH ON THESE OLD COLLECTABLES!
