pierrot clown

I have loved Pierrot clowns since I was a little girl.  My older sister had some wallpaper in her bedroom when she was little in early 1980s, and I keep searching eBay and vintage shops for a roll for myself, but so far no luck!  I found this little trinket box for 50 pence at a car boot sale, the same one where my Dad found the 1960s dolls house.  One day, it shall sit on my vintage dressing table (which I am yet to actually own!)


  1. I love these too....

    here is some vintage fabric you may like....http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VINTAGE-PIERROT-CLOWN-COTTON-SHEETING-FABRIC-RETRO80s-/290604245889?_trksid=p4340.m263&_trkparms=algo%3DDLSL%252BSIC%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252BIA%252BUA%252BFICS%252BUFI%252BDDSIC%26otn%3D8%26pmod%3D130544719851%252B130544719851%26po%3D%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D2426174814705181804#ht_500wt_949

  2. You could ask this person if they have anymore....

  3. Thanks for the memory of this. xx

  4. I’ve never really been into clowns, but this sure is a pretty trinket. I have an imaginary dressing table all dreamed up too.

    p.s My duvet cover is only a single but it’s double sided, so I’m hoping there will be plenty of fabric. I’ve been having doubts lately though, so was thinking maybe starting small with a few simple projects to get me back into using my sewing machine. Thank-you for the advice xxx

  5. I have a little collection of Pierrot things! I have a plate, a heart shaped ceramic box, some prints, and a big porcelain bust. I am scared of clowns usually, but this one is an exception.

  6. Ahhh I have the wallpaper in my room! It's been my pride and joy for 6 years! I was lucky enough to have been given 5 rolls by someone. Although because of damp issues in my room, it might get taken down :( I do have a spare roll but am holding onto it for dear life I'm afraid, in case I move or have to re decorate because of the crappy damp. I love it so much, I have actually copied one of the pierrot figures from my wallpaper and have it as a tattoo! :)
