Vintage Pasadena California Pottery Will George Flamingo 1940s-50s Excellent For Sale

Vintage Pasadena California Pottery Will George Flamingo 1940s-50s Excellent

Vintage Pasadena California Pottery WILL GEORGE Flamingo 1940s-50s Excellent

This was an estate sale purchase. The flamingo is in excellent condition with no chips, no scratches, no cracks, no scrapes, and no repairs. Anice crazing throughoutconfirms its old age. The flamingo is 11 ½ inches tall. Signed "Will George PASADENA" on the bottom. Some information on Will George follows:

William and George Climes founded The Will-George Company in 1934 in William's Los Angeles garage. The brothers manufactured an extensive line of quality art pottery made of porcelain and earthenware, including very popular bird and animal figurines. They eventually moved to a larger facility in Pasadena, California, and became a recognized member of the California Pottery community. Various stories on and around the web claim that these flamingos were produced for the grand opening of the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas. They were supposedly given as gifts, and that the number Will-George produced ranges from as high as 1000 to only 200 sets. As noted California pottery authority Jack Chipman writes in his Collector's Encyclopedia of California Pottery, "Will-George was in the forefront of the flamingo trend and in terms of product excellence, was never outdone." These graceful, exquisitely crafted flamingos capture the beauty of this 40's and 50's icon like no other artist or craftsman ever has.








California sales tax will be added to sales delivered in California, or California buyer must provide a valid signed California Resale Card, not just a resale number.
