A ceramic figurine inspired by the Disney Studios animated film, "Dumbo" (1940). Featuring Dumbo in his hat and clown collar, the figurine was produced in the 1940s by Evan K. Shaw pottery. Measuring 5”x4.5” and 5.5” tall, Dumbo is in very good condition with minor production imperfections in the glaze, and some crazing. Through the 1940s and 1950s, the Evan K. Shaw Pottery company and its sister companies, Metlox and American Pottery, produced a wide range of ceramics. In 1943, they were granted approval as a licensee to produce a range of Disney characters. These companies are no longer in business, and their highly desirable figurines are increasingly rare.
