This Anthropomorphic Mr.Garlic condiment jar was made by American Bisque, West Virginia. In the shape of the head of a man with a bushy upturned mustache, this jar will certainly make you smile. The jar is glazed in peach with deep pink - almost red cheeks, dark brown eyes with large black pupils, and wavy black hair. The comical face has wide-open, sleepy-lidded eyes with arched brows. The protruding nose is in the mold, and a smiling mouth is incised beneath the heavy, black mustache. His wavy hair and mustache are textured and stand out in relief. The dish and the cover are both slotted for a spoon. The cover of the jar is an olive green fedora-style hat with a jaunty, raised black feather on the left. The word “Garlic” is stamped in black on the front of the hat.
This humorous covered dish measures about 5-3/4 inches tall with the cover on, 3-1/2 inches without the lid, and about 5-inches front to back and 4-inches across his mustached face.
Made by American Bisque circa the 1960s, the flat bottom is Stamped 1643.
There is a small amount of non-discolored crazing, especially on the underside of the mustache. There is a 1/8-inch nick in his right eyebrow. There is a wrinkle under the glaze in his right cheek, which is clearly a manufacturing flaw. Though he may need a little cleaning, there are no other chips or cracks, and the colors are still clear and bright. The high-gloss glaze is very reflective, and what appears to be white spots is actually a reflection.
