YELLOW CLOWN by METLOX
1 in stock
Welcome to Poppy Trail California as this jar is “signed” on the bottom. It doesn’t show up well in the photo, so, I’ve circled the area on the underside and put an arrow pointing to where it says “Made in Poppy Trail Calif”. Made by Metlox potteries, this yellow clown was their first clown issue followed by the black trim & blue trim clowns. While this is the most common of the three jars, its still a stunning jar in its own right. Unfortunately, the smile is a bit worn as most of these original vintage jars with the yellow clown gown were. The smile was cold painted and over the last 50 years, some has worn off. Common but in this clown’s case, a good part of it is still there. Beautiful jar for a small price. No chips, no cracks or hairlines! Great gift idea for the upcoming holidays! If you or someone you know is a clown lover, this is the jar for you or their collection! I think Metlox made the best looking full figure clown of any of the jar manufacturers. I really do! I have several of these jars in my personal collection! My brother bought this jar for his wife when they were new in the stores & they still have it! Back then, it was $3.98!
