Does anyone know anything about these two pieces? The first one, the lion, has glass eyes (applied with plaster from the back) and it is very small 2 1/2" tall and about 3 1/2" wide and unmarked. The second one (I don't know what it is) I bought thinking it could be a nursery lamp, but I'm uncertain. It has glass eyes (but the inside is entirely glazed over including the eyes). It measures about 3 1/4" high and is about 4 1/2" long. The bottom is marked 12.18. in delicate black ink.

April,

I am sorry but I can't be much help with your figurals. The lion is similar to others we have seen but I don't know anything about it. It is the first one I have seen like this.

The cow (bison?) may be a tobacco jar without the lid. But, that is a guess since the eyes do not appear to be transparent. That said, it bears a stricking resemblence to the Bison (R-380),

"R-380 Bisque painted bison, orange transparent eyes with black center. 4.25"h x 4.75"w x 4.125"across horns."

Is there any chance the top of your Bison has been repaired or ground down?
Jim.

Undocumented nursery lamp Insidehl8

Hi Jim,
The inside had not been repaired or altered and I have a couple of old tobacco jars and the top does not look anything like the ones I have. It does look so much like R-380 (that's why I bought it). I think I paid around $8 for it a long while ago. The eyes look the same, the snout looks identical and the inside glaze is the same. Kind of a mystery. I just don't know why they would put in glass eyes then glaze over the back of them. Does anyone in our club own (R-380) –as I wonder if the inside of the eyes are glazed over–?
