Realistic figurines were a popular production for California potteries in the 40s. Jane Callender produced a whole host of different ones, but mostly concentrated on canines. Her dog figurines, like many of Kay Finch’s, exhibit a high attention to both detail as well as accuracy for the different breeds.

I’ve seen a number of dog items produced by Callender and they are often extremely detailed. Whereas some potteries went for a smoother modern look, the detail on her dogs is seems painstakingly done. The handmade fur in particular is “ruffled” or “fluffy” - I think she sometimes cut out pieces of clay and pressed them on instead of sculpting it out of the base model itself. Chipman notes that her factory started out in Los Angeles but later moved to North Hollywood. I have an address from a flyer on Vineland Ave at the intersection of Burbank Blvd. In addition to sculpture and figurines, she apparently also produced pins and buttons featuring the different breeds of dogs.
