70s Hobo Tramp Clown Bookends

This vintage collectible item is a pair of sturdy plaster hand-painted bronze-like figural bookends of traveling clowns sitting on their own costume/props trunks.

One clown looks happy (the “hobo”) and has a tiny hat on his bald head, accentuated eyebrows, white make-up outlining his big smile, a fake round red nose, baggy clothes, and oversized gloves and shoes.

The other clown looks sad (the “tramp”) and has a hat on over his hair, white make-up outlining his sad frown, a fake round red nose, baggy patched clothes, gloves, and oversized tattered shoes.

The 70s Hobo Tramp Clown Bookends, created in 1972 by Progressive Art Products, are in mint condition and make a great gift for collectors, book lovers, and clown enthusiasts.
