    Apparently Fres-O-lone was a ceramic Company . They sold blank ceramic molds and also must have made some of their molds up to sold as these darling lamps look professionally done . I did see another figure that they made on ebay a man figure that also looks painted professionally like yours . Very Cute Lamps . They appear to be Christmas Caroller's, Hope this helps a little bit .Thanks for sharing them

    Hi Lori,

    These figurines probably once belonged to my late grandmonther Florence Fresolone. She owned a ceramics store in Union NJ and I believe the story goes is that my late uncle was the mold maker and my grandmother did the finishing work. By any chance is there an "FF" signed on the bottom? She always singed her pieces with her initials. I was so young I have no memories of the molds just the finished pieces. The shop probably closed when I was a toddler. She did such beatiful work.

    Hope you enjoy this information,

    hi there, I believe I have a nativity set that was painted by or at the very least came from her studio, the pieces are very large between 9" and 13" tall. the pieces are dated 1972.

    Yes there were nativity sets as well. I just found a choir boy in my mothers collection. Like above but not the electric version. Just a ceramic piece with a ceramic flame still in place.

    I also have some figurines made by the Fres-o-lone co. I have 7 Dwarfs. That look nothing like the Disney dwarfs. I would like more info on them. Approx age. I got them with a girl figure, but she doesn't look like the typical Snow White. She looks more Spanish and is wearing a white and pink dress, carrying a basket. So I'm not sure who she is. She has Petras Molds engraved on the bottom as well as the Fres-o-lone.

    I have just bought 3,000 ceramic molds from a lady that was going out of business and I have about 10 different fresolone ceramic molds and I would love to have the pictures of the finished product. Would you happen to know where I could get a copy of the old catalog or just pics of them. Anything...very desperate. When I got all these molds none of them were in a categorized and have been working 12 hrs straight for 3 weeks now trying to get everything shelved with pictures.

    How exciting!!!! Unfortunately I have nothing except a piece here between my siblings and I. What are the subject matters that my
    Grandmother herself painted. Can you post photos of your molds? Check
    eBay. I saw one there for sale last year.

    Sorry for the typos. I wanted to say.."what are the subject matters?" And "we have a few pieces that my grandmother herself painted."
