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 near-mint condition and make a great gift for collectors and clown enthusiasts.
