* Glass Clown with Bowl
« on: February 07, 2008, 12:18:41 AM »
Hi, I just got this today (yes - I was Flea Market shopping).  Can anyone tell me anything about this guy here.  Id, and year. (Please note the first pix was way too bright with flash -- tried to tone it down). Thanks.

Pretty sure this one is an imitation of Murano glass clown bowls. Some of these are Mexican, but I think yours in Chinese.

This is a very new piece.
I agree it is most likely Chinese.

If someone has a similar piece, most likely they will be sent to this section anyway, so lets leave it.

another possibility is joska; don´t really know if they made clown bowls though.
compare their clowns (especially clown´s hat and feet) in this link:
joska clowns (click on clowns)
and the way the clown´s hands are applied to this bowl:
