Given to me just a few days ago, this newest part of my collection makes me smile so much! I love clowns and, of course, I love cars, so this vintage tin toy Clown Car is awesome! Expect to see him in some of my art really soon.
I turned 57 today, born in 1957. I guess it's a special year but I'm flat on my back with a sciatica flare up!
One turns the clown's head to wind up the toy. Once you do, the car moves forward for about a foot, stops, backs up for about a foot, stops, and keeps on repeating. I love it.
The painted details are right up my alley with stripes, tiny squares and colors with a lot of patina.
