- Pattern: Boy Clown Playing Flute
- Vintage: 1980’s – 1990’s (estimated)
- Details: This is a wonderful musical figurine. This sweet clown is wearing multi color polka dots pants with suspenders, a bowler hat with a pink bow, a pink collar and shoes. He is playing the flute as his little puppy looks at him intently. The details on this figurine are absolutely wonderful, you can see the wrinkles on his pants from the suspenders pulling on them, his little fingers are perfect and his face sweet as can be with a red clown nose and red cheeks. He is perfect, but we think the most wonderful thing about this piece is it plays “Speak Softly Love”. You may not know it by name because it is better known as the Love Theme from the Godfather. The figurine retains its original foil label that reads “Made in Taiwan” plus the song title label is still attached. A great gift for someone who loves the song, or for a figurine or music box collector, or someone who loves the Godfather movies or clowns.
- Material: Porcelain
- Dimensions: 8.25 inches Tall, 4.0 inches in Diameter
- Condition: Vintage – Used. Excellent Condition. There is a tiny mark on his hat, but we believe it’s a manufacturing flaw, it is glazed so not a chip. The lines you see on the boy’s face (on close up of his fingers), are not there, it’s a reflection of the flute.

Speak Softly Love is a beautiful love song published in 1972 by Nino Rota with lyrics by Larry Kusik. Besides the very popular instrumental movie version known simply as Love Theme from The Godfather, it was also made famous by Andy Williams who took it to number 34 on Billboard magazine’s Hot 100 in April 1972.
