white ceramic stag figurine

jacqueline9CAMay 18, 2011

I have inherited this white ceramic reclining stag figurine. It would have been purchased around or before mid-20th century. It is about 5 inches high. There are no marks on it. Does anyone have any ideas about possible manufacturers, etc? Thanks for your help!

Look at the bottom side. Is it open on the bottom and the figure hollow? If so, this may be a "slip molding" and inexpensive to produce. However, the design is appealing.

all porcelain figurines are hollow....from "no name" made in Japan to lladro and Royal Doulton on to cybis. they are made by pouring slip into a mold and sometimes piecing the molded pieces together and firing.
Because of the detail and delicacy of the antlers, this looks like a quality piece....unfortunatly I have no idea what it could be.

Might be Haeger Potteries from the 40s-60s. They made figures of this sort although the black panther is the most famous.

There is a book available. Maybe you could get a hold of a copy and see if its in there.

Actually according to some information a fair amount of it was unmarked or marked with labels, which were removed or came off.

Thanks - I see why you think it might be Haeger. I have looked, and so far have not found under Haeger, but you never know. Thanks for your help!
