An amazing set of 7 vintage wood toy Bill Ding blocks in the shaped of carved, painted clowns. Chippy painted rainbow color men, to be stacked & interlocked.

No markings. But they appear to be Bill Ding Stacking Clowns made by Strombecker or they were made to look just like them.

They date from sometime around midcentury or a bit earlier.

Each block is identically carved with grooves on his head and shoulders to allows for easy stacking.

The front of each man has etched out lines drawn for his face and clothing, painted black. He has a smiling cartoon-like face and an ill-fitting "suit".

Size of each:
4.25" x 1.75" x .75" deep or 10.8 cm x 4.4 cm x 1.9 cm

Two tomato red: Each has a fair amount of wear and distressing, paint is worn on both front and back and there faces are very worn, almsot entirely on one. THey both have some holes, like someone stuck a tack or nail into them.

Two are sea green: Each has a fair amount of wear and distressing, paint is worn on both front and back and there faces are very worn, almsot entirely on one. The pint is chipping on the back, to and under coat of another , lighter color. They both have some holes, like someone stuck a tack or nail into them.
