    When Mom passed this year, we found a box of my Grandmother's dog collectibles. All were wrapped in Miami newspaper dated 1963 so everything in the box we know is older than 1964 at least - all wrapped in same paper and since only 1 'layer' was used some were regrettably damaged).

    Not an expert on dog breeds, nor collectibles. I found this site when I was looking for help in identifying vintage costume jewelry I inherited from both my Mother and Grandmother.

    I can tell my Grandmother attempted to repair the chain that's supposed to go through the hole in figurine's hand. Instead it's looped around her wrist. I'm going to put it back together where it was originally supposed to be. I'm fascinated with this little trio!

    Finally I know the breed - POODLE! Stamp on bottom of female figurine "A Napco Ceramic" JAPAN and part of a number code. Face on figurine is surprisingly almost perfect still. Back of her dress is a bit dirty.

      Napcoware History
      Posted on November 16, 2012 by gmastree
      I listed some Napco Christmas ceramics recently and think it’s time to clear up some misinformation. You see, because I’ve only seen labels identifying the piece as Japan or Taiwan, I truly thought that this was a Japanese company. Wrong!

      The NAPCO Company or National Potteries Corporation is located in Bedford, OH and began production of Porcelain and Glass in 1938. Ceramic pieces sold by Napco (National Potteries Corporation) are distinctive. Since its prolific output of the 1950s and 1960s, Napco has held the interest of collectors because the ceramic items are consistently well-designed.
      Owned and operated in the Midwest, Napco distributed a variety of collectibles, including decorative wall accessories, ashtrays, ceramic and wood house wares, floral arrangements, ceramic planters, decorative glass, novelty figurines, mugs, trivets, and Christmas ceramics.In 1986, Napco purchased INARCO company and moved that company headquarters to Jacksonville,Florida.
      Napco used a wide array of marks-some transfer marks and some paper labels. The paper labels feature various wording, such as: “A Napco Collection,” “Napco originals by Giftware,” “National Potteries Co., Cleveland, OH, Made in Japan,” and “Napcoware, Import Japan.”

      Thanks, Efesgirl. I actually found another one listed on Etsy. Turns out where the dogs leashes are connected to her hand IS the correct position. The 'hole' in her hand was to hold a parasol she came with that we obviously no longer have. :(

      It was nice to see the whole picture of what she once was.
