Table of Contents

The Florence Ceramics Company of Pasadena, California, produced historical and literary figurines, birds, animals, figural pairs, and an extensive line of artware from the early 1940s to 1964. This wonderfully illustrated book identifies them all, complete with names, sizes, colors, current values, and many additional details.

Ceramic enthusiasts will enjoy the history of how company founder Florence Ward got her start in the ceramics business and how she researched the designs and period costumes of the figurines. Also included is a discussion of how the wares were produced, patent descriptions related to molding and manufacturing techniques, and interviews with family members and former employees.

Florence Ward's attention to detail and quality control was truly the "labor of love" so aptly described by the authors. Ceramic figurine collectors everywhere will find this extensive resource invaluable and delightful.
