Item Description:

Another fine piece of Italian ceramic brought to you by All That Glitters in Beautiful Bridgeport, Connecticut, an incredibly detailed handpainted vintage clown figurine made in Italy for Gump's Department Store in 'Frisco. Each detail of this this piece, including the folds and painting and strands of hair, are art. In case you are not familiar with Gump's it is a very prestigious high end store, where, we were told, Ms. Barbara Streisand enjoys shopping, we are sure this item was over $200 new. This colorful figurine is 7" tall and 9" long. Inside the clown's smock is marked "made in Italy for Gump's." He (or she, you can never be sure of a clown's gender) is sprawling forward with a posy in one hand. Excellent condition, no chips, no cracks. We do not have the box. This is a fine example of Old World artisanship.
