Flambro's porcelain figurines of Emmett Kelly dressed as the hobo clown depict him in a range of different scenarios. One figurine depicts him leaning against a lamp post, in the snow, dressed as Santa Claus, but still wearing his clown makeup with painted black stubble instead of a white Santa beard. Another figurine shows him wearing a large barrel held up by suspenders over his hobo-clown costume.
Ron Lee's porcelain figurines of circus clowns have various themes. The very detailed figurine entitled "Sidney" is of a standing clown wearing a plaid suit, light blue blazer, light green hat and multi-colored, over-sized clown shoes. His entire face is painted white with a red nose, red lips, red cheeks and red markings at the eyes. The "Sidney" clown is holding a red heart-shaped balloon that has "Love" written on it in gold.Learn more about Collecting
