144 pages. The lovely Florence figures, made in Pasadena, California, by Florence Ward and the Florence Ceramics Company from 1939 into the 1960s are featured in this first book on the subject. With over 400 color photographs, readers are introduced to the lovely ladies in elegant, lace-trimmed gowns, perfectly behaved children standing or sitting quietly as angels, and gentlemen dressed like dandies in their short pants and fancy coats. This history of the Florence collection includes complete details about the early factory and the step-by-step process used in the creation of figurines as related by Florence's son, Clifford Ward, Jr. Some of largest Florence collections in the country are represented along with a price guide of yesteryear, Florence artware, Florence pairs, and children figurines.
