This lovely mid century California Pottery angel figurine by Florence Ceramics is hand painted, has gold trim and stands 7" high. If I look closely I can see some crazing, but no chips, dings or cracks. It looks lovely in a Christmas scene among the green boughs, or as a stand alone, all year round collectible. A gift that will be remembered for years to come.
This vintage collectible is signed with a faint Florence script signature and can be seen on page 99 of the reference book The Florence Collectibles by Doug Foland.
For those of you that may not be familiar with Florence Ward's story, I encourage you to read up on her. It's a very inspirational story that is quite moving. In her grief after losing a young son, she turned to a hobby of making clay figurines in her garage....and the rest is history!
