Vintage Mickey Mouse planter. Colorful and cute planter for your Disneyana collection! These were made by Am. Bisque, distributed by the Leeds company and licensed by Walt Disney Productions from 1944-54. This one has incised mark: Mickey Mouse Walt Disney Prod. on backside rim. It had some dirt on the interior when purchased; most of it has been removed. It has a couple of teensy chigger bites on the back rim edge of planter, see photo #7; and a couple dark underglaze dots on the top of the head. If you put it up on a shelf or put a faux plant it in, you'll never see the rim dots. It stands 5.5 tall x 5.5 long. Very cute and hard to find item! Listed for $65 at another site; why pay more? 1/14est

Vintage pig pitchers and shakers. The cute piggy pitchers were made by American Bisque I believe; will check the books later. The largest is 8 tall x 8 long with shamrock? pattern.

The one with red neck scarf has a long, tight hairline on backside and a bit of clay waste on top of head; and they both have some missing coldpaint. Just a colorful assortment of vintage American pottery to display! Price is firm. 12/13

The bank is 6 1/2 inches tall, about 4 1/2 inches long at the longest and 2 1/2 inches wide. Bank is marked on the back, Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney, Prod..

Vintage American Bisque pig bank. Very cute; big red bow and flower pattern. The pattern is shown towards back of book. It is 9.25 long x 5.5 tall. Has crazing and about 10% paint loss on cold painted areas. There is a 1 inch line near the slot; it is a firing crack line; edges of it are smooth, so it is not a hairline. This happens when clay is fired; sometimes it cracks a bit and is a factory flaw. Hull Pottery made the identical pig & pattern but for the green leaves, (the leaves are more plentiful on the Hull piggie). Saw one of these at a recent antique show on sale for $165! 10/08estaucs
