Florence Ceramics, Pasadena - John And Mary, Beach Kids For Sale

Florence Ceramics, Pasadena - John And Mary, Beach Kids

Here are two figurines by Florence Ceramics of Pasadena - a boy and a girl named John and Mary. They are part of a set called "Beach Kids," and they are just adorable. Mary has a tiny chip on the underside of her nose, and on her right black shoe, a flake has been reglued - fairly well. Also, an observant er emailed me to tell me that he thinks her head was broken off and reglued on. And he's right. Oh dear, but it is fairly well done.
Now John - he has lost the ice cream cone he held in his right hand. Also, near his other hand where he has his thumb stuck in his pocket, there must have been a shallow chip one time that has been reglued on his brown shorts. I didn't notice it when I bought them at an estate sale, but you can feel it. However, it is hard to detect because the brown matches perfectly to the rest of his shorts. They stand 7.5" high. I just love Mary's patent leather Mary Jane shoes and John's saddlebacks! I decided to relist them with all their defects, and hope someone will love them enough to give them a chance! The same buyer bought John and Mary both times I had them listed, and she did not follow through with payment. I was amazed when she bought them a second time - and mad at myself for not blocking her from offerding.
So I am relisting them. They are pictured, along with their 2 other beach kid friends, Blondie and Sandy, in the book Florence Ceramics, a Labor of Love, by Barbara and Jerry Kline, and Margaret Webrspaun, on page 119. If these don't sell as a pair, I can sell them separately - just let me know. The glaze on this boy and girl is very shiny and glossy. Florence Ward starting making ceramic figurines in her garage, and started with mostly children, to help with her grief because of the death of her son. It grew into a very successful factory in Pasadena, making beautiful figurines until the early 60's or late 50's.
