Old, Handmade, Black Face Clown Doll with upturned nose

I believe this is an old doll, maybe 1940 or so, but do not know it's date of origin. The face looks painted. It has blue eyes with details, and red lips with individual teeth painted. It appears hand made, and feels stuffed with a substance like cotton. The hair and red balls on the front of the costume seem hand-made, and of the same material. It sits about 10 inches tall. The joints are sewn and soft. It has a very wide base for sitting, but is NOT weighted. There are no markings / labels of any sort. The nose points up. It must have been well cared for or maybe stored, as there are not any stains or tears that could be associated with child's play. I am interested in selling it and/or learning more about it's history.
