This interesting clown doll has a composition head, and the rest of his body is cloth. He is unjointed and unmarked.
Unlike most clown dolls, he is not just a regular doll painted to look like a clown. His exaggerated features, including the pointy eyebrows and the “Joker” style mouth, are molded into his face.
His body is made of red and white fabric to look like a costume, but he may have originally had an outfit over that, and likely a hat, too. He probably dates to the 1920s or ’30s.
