This is an original, handmade "U Name It" critter by Robert Maxwell circa 1959. These are also commonly called "Beasties."

This piece is handmade and signed by Maxwell, made before the mold productions started later in the 1960s. All of Maxwell's pieces are collectible, but the handcrafted items are much harder to find and therefore even more desirable. Well known for his humorous, imaginative style, Maxwell is considered a pioneer in California pottery.

With its funny expression, long snout, padded feet, and loving details, this little U Name It will be a welcome addition to a collection and/or mid century decor. There is some damage as you can see in the photo...one tip of an eyebrow is missing and there is a chip off of one side of the mouth. 3 1/2" long and 3" high.

Maxwell is still producing pottery and contributes to this excellent website: http://www.robertmaxwellceramics.com
