Offered here is a lovely Woman with Muff Figurine by Florence Ceramics, Pasadena, California. If you are a collector of the 19th century fashionably dressed ladies you will want this one in your collection, as it appears to be a rather difficult one to come by. The bottom carries the Florence Ceramics stamp but there is no label, of which I figure there may have been the figurines given name. I’ve been unable to find her name but believe she may be a Grace Kelly. She too has a gentle quiet about her. The figure stands 6 ½ inches high and is in excellent collectible or gift giving condition. Her long flowing winter white dress with gold striped bodice is decorated with tiny gold flowers; the center top of her hat also has a gold flower design on top. Her cape and brown glove cuffs are trimmed in bonze colored spaghetti, an art form quite popular during the 1950s-1960s. Many poodle figurines were adorned with it. Florence Ceramics used this technique on many of their figurines also, as done on this Woman with Muff. Her muff is made from ceramic spaghetti and her hat is also trimmed with spaghetti. All spaghetti is tipped with gold color and is clean. Although I did not need to clean the ceramic spaghetti, the figurines came from a smoke free/nearly dust free home, but if you were to do this, I have found that a soft toothbrush and warm soapy water does the trick without damage. There is no need to submerge! The Florence Ceramics Co. was sold in 1964. Sales tax must be collected for buyers living in or picking up in New York State. Local tax rate applies.
