Description

This is a cute smiling clown toting a guitar. He has a bulbous red nose and is marked Universal Statuary Corporation. I am not positive if this is chalkware, but it is definitely similar Clown is signed 1979 Universal Statuary Corp.

The Overall condition is good, a couple small chips but there are no cracks or repairs. There are a few scuff marks on his feet but these are minor. He weighs about seven pounds. I am sure this little guy will bring a smile to a face or two. He measures about 15 inches tall and 10 inches across the base from foot to foot.

Universal Statuary Corp. was a Chicago based statue manufacturer. Jack and Leo Lucchesi founded the Universal Statuary Corp. The company produced piggy banks, plaques and (by the late 1930's the large store displays including Indian statues. The company employed many immigrant artisans to design the chalk-ware and plaster figures and produce the statues.

The company employed plastic in the 1970's. The Lucchesi family sold the company in the early 1980's. James L. Dorman owned the company in the late 1980's and it was headquartered in Milwaukee. The company employed about 130 people in Chicago in the late 1980's
