Merry Christmas From … The Clam Box?!

Westporter Victoria Kann — author and illustrator of the Pinkalicious series — gave JP Vellotti a very interesting Christmas ornament:

Westporters of a certain vintage recognize it immediately. The Clam Box was a Westport institution for decades, on the Post Road near the Exit 18 connector. Today, it’s Bertucci’s.

This trip down memory lane raises interesting questions: Were these ornaments a custom, back in the day? Did other Westport restaurants hand them out too? Does anyone have one from La Normandie? Cafe Barna? The Townly?

No? Well, okay. How about one from Bertucci’s?
