Here is the hard-to-find Anthropomorphic Soup Ladle by DeForest of California Pottery in their famous Pig design. The handle has long, vertical ribs resembling a stalk of celery, and the bowl of the ladle is the well-known DeForest Little Pig face. The ears jut out from the sides of the ladle, and the features in the pink face are sharp and clear. The high gloss glaze covers the entire ladle except at the top of the handle and the back of the bowl where the ladle rests on the table.
It’s difficult to measure this curvy ladle, but it is approximately 9-1/4 inches long. When resting on the table it is 3-inches high, and the bowl of the ladle is 3-7/8 inches across the ears, and about 1-1/2 inches deep.
Made by Deforest Pottery circa 1950 through the 1960s, it is not marked.
There is a 1-1/4 inch hairline on the underside. This does not go through, and may have occurred in the manufacturing process. The photo makes it look darker than it actually is. There is also non-discolored crazing covering the entire ladle. There are no other condition issues.
