Richard Hubbard's Red and White Jointed Folk Art Clown (with One Ear)

Regular price $40.00

I just couldn't resist this guy, especially for his red and white striped pants, though he's got a pretty empathetic face, too, all the more so for missing an ear on one side of it! It doesn't appear that he ever had strings attached to his arms and legs in order to make them move, but happily he'll sit up on his own in all sorts of positions, with arms and legs holding in a variety of ways. 

15 1/2" t x 5" w and aside from the clean loss of one ear there is a well repaired split to his chest, not at all fragile now.  1920s-40s or so I believe. Signed Richard Hubbard in numerous places in pencil on the reverse.
