This is an old milk or cream pitcher of Dumbo, Walt Disney's flying elephant. He has a happy face with his trunk up which makes the spout for pouring. His features are detailed with black, his ears and belly are pastel brown and he is also has gold accents. All of the color is under glaze. His name is incised on his side. Along the lower back on either side of the handle it has the Walt Disney copyright and is marked; U.S.A.. The bottom is unglazed.
This is attributed to Leeds Pottery which was actually not the manufacturer but rather the distributor licensed by Walt Disney Productions between 1944 and 1954 to use their characters for pottery pieces. Production for Leeds was done by many different companies including American Bisque, American Pottery and Regal China with no distinction as to the actual maker of a particular piece.
It measures about 6" tall to the top of his raised trunk and is in very good condition with minimal wear.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
