Lot No. 1467

Manufacturer: Rookwood

Description: Figure of a proud boxer in natural colors of brown, white and black standing on a green plinth, made at Rookwood in 1944. Impressed with the Rookwood symbol and the date. Uncrazed with some minor glaze misses on the plinth. Height is a generous 10 1/4 inches, but he doesn’t eat much. Oral tradition suggests that around 25 of the boxers were made for the B. Altman Co,, a Rookwood retailer in New York.
