For your consideration is a vintage California Pottery: DeForest May O'Naise Anthropomorphic Hand Painted Porcelain Mayonaise Dish. On the front of his green hat it reads in script: May O'Naise. He has a expressive face with big blue eyes & long lashes, blonde hair that is outlined in black. There is a indentation on the head, which is under the hat, where a spoon can rest. However, this item does not include a spoon. It is marked on the bottom: DeForest, F, California, Hand Painted. Approx.: 4 1/4"T X 4 1/2"Rd.
CONDITION: There is some wear from age & use such as two small paint chips on the rim edge of his hat and on the inside opening and across from the spoon indentation there is a smaller indentation that has a little rough area where the glaze did not take. This is not a chip & happened during manufacturing. Otherwise, he is in very good, vintage & usable condition.
