Jojo the Dog-Faced Boy Victorian Oval Pendant
Born Fedor Jeftichew in Russia, Jojo was a circus sideshow performer that toured with P.T. Barnum throughout Europe and North America. He shared the medical condition hypertrichosis – and sideshow stages in Russia – with his father before emigrating to America with Barnum in 1884 at age 16.
Our Victorian Curiosities collection features other sideshow performers and unusual images taken from Victorian cabinet cards.
These pendants feature a sepia-toned photo image under a slightly-domed glass oval, and are finished on the back with smooth glittery silver resin. A sterling silver plated bail and a non-tarnishing delicate rhodium-plated chain complete the piece.
Pendant is just over 1.25" long, including bail.
Chain is 24" long.
Bail opening is 2mm; able to accommodate other chain styles if you have a special one you prefer.
