These china figurines are Pongo and Perdita, the Dalmatian pair who starred in the Walt Disney movie "One Hundred And One Dalmatians." They are just terrific together, Pongo happy and bright, Perdita sweet and demure.
SIZE is about 5 inches tall.
CONDITION is lovely with NO damage. There are NO cracks, chips, flakes or repairs. The decoration is very detailed, with great expression.
NOTE: There are no bottom marks. I am not sure how they escaped being marked; or perhaps the marks were removed by a prior owner, but these are definitely authentic.
BACKGROUND from Wikipedia: "One Hundred and One Dalmatians," often abbreviated as "101 Dalmatians," was a 1961 animated adventure film produced by Walt Disney. Disney's 17th animated feature film, it tells the story of a litter of Dalmatian puppies who are kidnapped by a villainous woman named Cruella de Vil, who wants to use their fur to make into coats. The dog parents, Pongo and Perdita, set out to save their children from Cruella, along the way rescuing 84 additional puppies that were bought in pet shops, bringing the total of Dalmatians to 101.
Originally released to theaters on January 25, 1961, by Buena Vista Distribution, "One Hundred and One Dalmatians" was a box office success. It was reissued to cinemas four times: in 1969, 1979, 1985 and 1991. The 1991 reissue was the twentieth highest earning film of the year for domestic earnings.
