Vintage image of a clown boxing a kangaroo. I added platinum luster stars around their heads to give the impression of them being punched out. A fun gift for someone who likes the circus. This is a vintage image of a circus clown from the early part of the1900's. I found a old scrapbook at an antique market years ago and had ceramic decals made from the images.

The tumbler measures approximately 5-1/8" high and holds 12 ounces of your favorite beverage. This can be used for a can of soda, beer, wine, ice tea, whatever you want to put in it. If you prefer, this can also be used as a vase.

This piece was accented in a turquoise underglaze with black border accents and the platinum luster stars were added on in the same firing as the decals.

The vase / tumbler is hand thrown from white stoneware clay and fired twice to over 2100 degrees. The decal is fired in a 3rd firing in the kiln at over 1400 degrees to make the decal permanent, although do not scrub with anything abrasive like steel wool. The silver star is hand painted with platinum luster which is fired at the same time as the decal. Food safe and microwaveable (the amount of luster is miniscule), but I would recommend hand washing to putting in the dishwasher because handmade ceramics enjoy the extra attention.

I will be putting up a bunch of tumblers / vases with vintage illustrations soon so keep an eye out, there are some really cute images. Some I made up in Photoshop from a variety of vintage images and others are copies of old advertising.
