This is Camel Mama by Helen Perrin Farnlund. It is item 281 and stands 1 5/8" tall. It was issued in 1956 and retired in 1968 but reissued in 1995 and retired a few years ago. This piece is free from chips, breaks or repairs. Any small specs or bright lines that look like scratches are just light reflections. Hagen is the only manufacturer of miniature ceramic animals left in the U.S. The company was founded in 1946 by Maxine and John Renaker. Maxine passed away a few years ago at the age of 89. The first factory was in Monrovia, CA but in 1962 it moved to San Dimas. The company continues under the leadership of their daughter to produce these lovely animals. One of the characteristics of ceramics is that as they age they develop small hairline cracks in the finish called crazing.
