    I picked this up at GW a couple of days ago and just got around to posting it. I actually set it aside and forgot about it. Kind of a good thing as it gives me something to post today. It's been slim pickings all week since my Murano paperweight finds on Monday.
    I've always wanted one of these but had to pass them up either they were too expensive. damaged or gone by the time I decided to go back and pick it up. While I don't think this is an original 1941 Royal Hickman, it is Haeger and probably dates from the 80's or 90's as a reissue, but it could be from the 50's or 60's too. It's hard to tell without it's label. Early ones had a gold foil or paper label on the underside, while pieces from the 80's to the present have a Haeger bar code label with the year.
    This figure was designed by Royal Hickman one of their best sculptures and was first introduced by Haeger in 1941. Hickman excelled at creating his pieces in the art deco style. The "stalk" was captured perfectly in his black panther. Haeger offered it in three sizes. This one is an 18" version and in perfect condition. There should be a black Haeger stamp on one of the front feet next to the hole. It had some cloth glued to each foot to protect the furniture. I removed it but the glue remains most likely covering the stamp. They can be very faint. poorly stamped and hard to read. There is also a large red bull (Toro) by Eric Olsen that is the epitome of mid-century style that I've been searching around for to add to my collection. That will most likely cost a fortune too if I ever come across one. -Mike-

      Nice! The original fits w/those old Turner prints: panthers, flamingos, exotic flowers.

      My parents had this panther. They have both passed now and I was wondering if anyone knows what it may be worth? Has the Haeger tag on the top of it. Looks like may have been something on bottom too but I'd gone. Does have writing on paw Haeger

      Can anyone tell me whether they originally came with "jewels" on the eyes? Or if any other company's versions did? The ones I have bought looked like the jewels were added after the sale, and I removed the glue cleanly and easily, and like them better without. But there are some I'm considering buying online that look like it would leave a pit or hole if I remove the jewels. On the other hand, my panther lamp has holes where the eyes are, and light comes out of them, which I DO like, and I have wondered if they used to have jewels! Can anyone clear this up? Thanks!

      It would be really helpful just to know what sizes the Haeger panther figurines and planters were made in. I've seen it stated that there were 3 sizes, and one was 24", but what were the other 2? And were the planters made in the same sizes as the figurines? I've seen many 16" planters, but mine is 14.75". I have quite a few of these, and it is very frustrating to determine exactly what I have!

      Research "Haeger Panther figurines" with a google search - more than four pages of sites.

      Emma Peel, the panthers with jewel eyes are not Royal Haeger pieces.
