Description

The Josef figurines were first introduced by Muriel Joseph George in the mid 1940's and were only produced in California, USA. In the 1960's, production moved to Japan. Muriel insisted that all of her porcelain figurines/items be triple fired in the kiln. This simple measure ensured that her fine and delicate figurines would hold up thru the years. Most early figurines have the coveted black eyes, later ones have brown eyes. Rarely seen, vintage from the 1950's, this Josef porcelain figurine, is called "Carol" from the original California series, circa 1950's.

This lovely figurine stands 4 1/4" tall, she's wearing a beautiful pink dress with a gray coat outfit with white pantaloons and features an abundance of gold gilt. She's holding a lovely gold gilt bouquet. She has black eyes, brown hair with a cute gray bonnet that features gold gilt. Figurine features a partial "California" foil sticker label. Early Josef is marked on the bottom. The figurine is in excellent condition, slight crazing due to age. Postage on this item includes insurance.
