ALSO IN JACK CHIPMAN'S BOOK OF CALIFORNIA POTTERY 2ND EDITION, IT SAYS THE EARLIEST ITEMS WERE MARKED WITH A STAMP ON THE BOTTOM IN AN OVAL SHAPE AS THIS ONE IS, SEE PICTURE # 4. THIS IS ALSO PICTURED ON THE COVER IN A DIFFERENT COLOR. THE COLOR OF THIS IS AN OFF WHITE, HE HAS A SCARF AROUND HIS NECK THAT IS COLD PAINTED. THE COLOR IS BLUE WITH STRIPES OF DIFFERENT COLORS, T IS SOME WEAR ON THE PAINT IT HAS TWO SMALL DEFECTS THAT YOU CAN SEE IN PHOTOS #6 & 7. THEY ARE DARKER AS I COULD NOT USE MY FLASH . ONE IS A GLAZE POP OR FLAKE ON THE RIM AND THE OTHER IS A SMALL CHIP ON THE BOTTOM RIM 1/8 BY 3/16. BOTH ARE MINOR AND COULD BE FIXED BY A PROFESSIONAL VERY EASILY. BESIDES THOSE TWO IMPERFECTIONS THIS IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION FOR IT'S AGE. THESE ARE NOT SEEN OFTEN, SO IF YOU WHAT TO ADD IT TO Y OUR COLLECTION, IT IS.
