Product Description

A superb knockdown head…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we believe it would date to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1960s (possibly earlier). We understand that this piece came direct from a showman’s yard, after being stored for many years. This is one of three different heads that featured on an original side stall, coconut shy or ‘knockdown’ game

It’s a wonderful piece, rare to find in such condition and the ultimate collectors piece. The patina and nature of the head oozes charm and authenticity. Original pieces like this rarely come on the market, so we are really chuffed to be able to offer it to a new home or business…

Made in a thick stump of wood, the head has been cleverly sculpted and painted. The addition of the metal bow tie and cigar is a fine addition! It’s relatively heavy, yet happily ‘free stands’ on its own too

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. Structurally the piece is in great shape, with surface scars and abrasions, some paint chipping and some rusty areas. There’s no woodworm or rot, so this piece can happily sit on display in one’s home, or of course a retail setting. We feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections
