Florence Ceramics Of Pasadena "judy" Florence Ward Artist :
THIS BEAUTIFUL FLORENCE CERAMIC NAMED "JUDY" FIGURINE IS UP FOR offer.
I understand she is on her way to prom
Florence Ceramics was created in 1939 when a dynamic woman named Florence Ward setup a kiln and decided to take up modeling clay figures.
Florence set up her business and in 1948 moved The Florence Ceramics Company to a large facility in Pasadena, California where it remained until 1964, when the plant was sold to Scripto. From 1939 to 1964 Florence Ward was the sole designer for the many figurines that were produced by the Florence Ceramics Company. Her innovative designs were sold through fine jewelry and department stores and even established a following overseas.May Company in Pasadena was thefirst company to purchase some of her work.
These figurines and their lives dance along the real journy of time.
This is one of three figerines that I put up for offer a couple weeks ago. Not knowing anything about them and not recognizing the lace & some gold edge damage I listed them incorrectly. I had received several emails from viewers not only giving me valuable information about the figerines they also brought to my attention of the lace and gold edge damage as well as some chipping of the flowers. I appreciate the corrections and for so many bringing it to my attention. I was totally unaware. I than took them down from offerding so that I could correct my discriptions for reofferding. I have added some extra pictures for your viewing of the damage.Judy has a tiny bit of lacedamage on herright second panel of ruffels on her skirt and possibly on the 4th panel at tip.It might just be a little bit of gold edging missing. It is hardfor me to tell. She also has some chipping of flowers on skirt.
I bought the lady figurines at an estate sale. Unfortunately there was no autheticity or boxes that came with them. This I believe is one that Florence started making with real lace. It is very delicate and intricate. The flowers are a pinkwith goldedging on lace and leaves. Her hair isblond and she has flowers on each side of her hairdo with green leaves.
All fingers are there and nails are painted pink
Approximately 9" tall and6 1/2" wide in skirt flow (base)
She too is very beautiful in spite of her damage
THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AND HAPPY offerDING
