Since its inception in 1939, National Potteries Corp. (Napco) hasn’t made a lot of religious figures, and the hand painted nuns dressed in white are even harder to find. This 1962, 5” figure is holding a pair of scissors or trimmers in one hand; I’m not sure what is in her other hand. At her feet is a pot or cage. Maybe she’s trimming vegetable to cook: I don’t really know, but she is cute. She is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or crazing. She has a satin glaze. There is a small black mark on the hem of her habit in the back. It may be a smudge of paint when the artist was decorating the figure. It is marked with model number R5407 on the bottom as well as having both the foil tag and stamped markings.
This would be a great addition to your mid-century, religious of ceramic collection. Please contact us if you have any questions.
