Vive le difference! From adorable “Wee Chinese” to towering “Egyptians”, from exotic “Temple Dancers” to zesty “Zulus”, Ceramic Arts Studio figurines run the global gamut. Colorfully costumed visitors from other lands, courtesy of “the little Studio that could” brightened homes from coast to coast during the 1940s and ‘50s, and continue to brighten hearts today.
