This adorable teddy bear planter with pink bow was made sometime in the forties or fifties by Spaulding China in Ohio for their charming and sought after Royal Copley line of figures, planters, and other decorative items. This cute guy, perfect for the nursery, still has his original foil sticker, just like the day he was released from the factory. Perfect item for the Royal Copley collector or as a baby shower gift.
Spaulding China was founded in 1939 in Ohio to take advantage of the decorative china niche left by the fact that America was no longer importing china from Japan due to the war. Sadly, though the company was very successful for twenty years, it did not make it into the sixties. Like many American companies it could not compete with cheap imports. Spaudling believed in paying its skilled labor force good wages.
CONDITION: Excellent, almost mint, just some crazing in the glaze, which is normal for an item of this age and type. Foil label is also in excellent condition.
SIZE: Measures 6 1/2 inches tall.
