Puddles at Clown Museum

Clowning with the eggheads

Stan Bult, one of the founder members of Clowns International had a strange hobby. Every clown has a unique face and name. He painted these onto hen’s eggs in the 1950s and 60s. They became a record of each unique face and clown name. The eggs became the ‘official’ clown register.

These days hen’s eggs have been replaced with porcelain ones as they are less susceptible to breakage.

Here we see Puddles has presented the museum with this remarkably lifelike visage of his friend Big Mike. It’s a bit bigger than the other eggs, but then Puddles doesn’t do things small.
