Description

Welcome to view our listing of this Vintage 1973 Holly Hobbie "Happiness Is Having Someone To Care For" Slotted Cut Out Genuine Porcelain World Wide Arts Bowl!

This slotted cut out Holly Hobbie bowl is white with gold hand painted trim around the outer scalloped edged rim. It depicts the well known character Holly Hobbie doll with her bonnet, dress, apron, Mary Jane shoes, and leotards carrying a brown cat through fields of wild flowers and a butterfly hovering over the flowers. There is a text message that reads "Happiness is having someone to care for". It also has a copyright symbol with W.W.A. on the inside of the bowl under the picture. There are three hammer head designed slot cut out openings around the bowl. On the backside of this bowl, the text reads "HOLLY HOBBIE, Genuine Porcelain, WORLD WIDE ARTS, Inc, Cleveland Ohio 44144, MCMLXXIII, Made In Japan stamped in black ink.

This bowl measures 1-1/2" in height by 8" in diameter and was made in Japan in 1973. This slotted bowl is genuine porcelain and is in good condition with the exception of an imperfection on the underside base that was there when it was made.

Denise Holly Ulinskas who was born in 1944 sold artwork to American Greetings in a series of illustrations of a cat loving little girl who wore rag dresses, a large bonnet, and Mary Jane shoes who would later be named Holly Hobbie. She was a contract artist and illustrator who worked alongside American Greetings art director Rex Connors. Bob Childers was also a artist and designer hand stitched the first Holly Hobbie prototype and presented it to Connors. Conners took it to Creative Vice President, Tom Wilson and he approached Knickerbocker Toys to license the Holly Hobbie rag dolls in 1974. There was also a Holly Hobbie Oven that was shaped like an old-fashioned wood stove with an incandescent bulb to heat the oven, and it came with pre-packaged mixes that could also be purchashed separately. Holly Hobbie was also featured in a novel called "The Adventures Of Holly Hobbie" written by Richard Dubelman in 1980 depicting her as a ghost who lived in a painting that was painted in 1803 and came out of the picture to help an ancestor Liz Dutton find her missing archaeologist Father who dissapeared in Guatemala.

Holly Hobbie was redesigned in 2006 and featured in a movie named "Holly and Friends" created by author Linda Hafward and the movie aired on Nick Jr. and is available on DVD. In 1980, Holly was featured in a novel by Richard Dubelman entitled The Adventures of Holly Hobbie. In this book, Holly Hobbie is a ghost who lives in a painting that was painted in 1803. She comes out of the painting to help a descendant, Liz Dutton, find her missing father, an archaeologist who has vanished in Guatemala. In 2010 work on the franchise was shelved and slowly came to a halt.

This Holly Hobbie slotted bowl would look awesome in your daughter or granddaughters room on a shelf to be displayed!
