These dancing figures along with Jesters also were very popular in 50's
They measure 14 inches high and 12 inches wide and 3 inches deep . As you can see from starburst there is a few chips and plaster is rough and multicolored . I am posting them now un restored . When next photo is posted they will be restored . Great Retro Plaques . Stamped made "Michigan Composition and Lamp Co. Copyright and a number . Little is known of company that I can find history on .

    So many of those campanies literally sprang up overnight to keep up the demand for these figurines and lamps. The most famous is Reglor : Bernie Stein and Rena Stein began Regor of California in 1947. Reglor is the combination of the names Rena and her cousin Gloria. Credit for the design inspirations is to be shared with Oscar Vega, a production assistant. Reglor lamps were frequently produced as a male and female pair. The distinctive shades of Reglor lamps were also made in house. Production stopped in 1975 when the Reglor factory in Montebello, California burned.
