This is the first book devoted entirely to the vast array of wonderful animal sculptures and decorative items produced by Freeman-McFarlin Pottery, located in California from 1951 through 1980. This book contains over 480 vivid photos and vintage catalog pages, interviews with former employees, and a price guide. Learn the story of the overlapping histories of other California Potteries owned by Gerald McFarlin prior to his partnership with Maynard Anthony Freeman, including Tudor Pottery, Rio Hondo, and McFarlin Potteries. The early years are defined by cute miniature animals and plain-looking pottery. Once the partnership flourished, the animals and tableware became larger, bolder, and much more innovative. The history includes two factories, numerous artists, a devastating fire, the sale of the company to International Multifoods of Minnesota, and ultimately, the sale to Hagen-Renaker, a well-known California Pottery, in 1980.
