70s Hobo Tramp Clown Bookends

This is a pair of sturdy figural clown bookends. They are beautifully hand-painted, bronze-like statues made of plaster. Consequently, they are heavy and sturdy. Typical of a hobo clown, he is happy. In addition, he has on a tiny hat, accentuated eyebrows, big red fake round nose, white make-up outlining his big smile, baggy clothes, and oversized shoes and gloves. Alternately, and typical of a tramp clown, he is sad. Additionally, he has on a hat, a fake red round nose, white make-up outlining his sad frown, baggy patched clothes, and oversized tattered shoes. Furthermore, each is sitting on their costume and props trunk.

Use the clowns to keep your books from falling. Place them at opposite ends of a row of upright books. Because the weight of the clowns is heavy, they hold the books snuggly together and keep them from falling. These clown bookends were produced in 1972 by Progressive Art Products. They are in excellent condition. The vintage 70s Hobo Tramp Clown Bookends make a perfect gift for collectors, avid readers, and clown enthusiasts.
