Colorful Vintage Clown Cookie Jar Hand painted 1960-70 Circus Theme scary Clowns Happy Clowns Cookie or Biscuit Jar


This is another great cookie jar from the same collector as others we have listed. It's hand made and likely handpainted. She obviously took a class in Ceramics ( from other items we purchased) in the 80s and 90s but this is earlier. This one is 11" high and has very bright colors. I Don't find the pattern or the mold elsewhere so I don't believe it was mass produced. I only found one other like it. It is a great happy clown not at all scary unless you are afraid of clowns. Then I guess they are all scary!

This one measures 11 inches high about 8 inches wide. These will be packed well all the cookie jars. I don't recommend combining them only because the box size get's out of hand.

This will be sure to please the children in your home or the young at heart. Add a spot of color to a shelf or a collection .

The only real wear I note is on the fringe of his yellow hair. The tips are a little rough more unfinished than chipped but check out all the pictures.

We have added a 3.00 handling fee to cookie jars - as we are double boxing them. They typically cost us about 5 .00 in peanuts and boxes. We don't get these items at deep discounts like large retailers do.

Generally, buyers pay the additional costs such as duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees. Import charges can vary widely but are most commonly based on the price and type of item, package weight and dimensions, origin country, and the taxes, duties, and fees of the destination country.
Most sellers on Etsy are unable to predict which of these fees, if any, will be applied, and Etsy does not expect sellers to calculate or collect these fees or taxes. This information should be clarified in sellers' shop policies. You can learn more about shop policies here.
