The first seated joker is published by John Waddington Ltd from the UK.
This next one doesn't have a wand or a jester hat hat but he does have has big ears, a ruffle around his neck, and contrasting colors. Is he a jester? I think it's close enough for this section since he is really sitting. He might be in the process of putting on his shoes.
I think of the next one as "The Jolly Sideways Sitter". The original of this design (and I quote Tom van Berkum):
"Adet Seward Cognac" - early advertising deck by Brepols, Turnhout, Belgium ca. 1920-1925. 52 cards + 1 joker + box. 88 x 64 mm. GvB0189
BTW, I'm not sure if mine is an original or a later deck using the same design.
