A ceramic figurine inspired by the 1944 Disney Studios film The Three Caballeros. Featuring the casually hip Brazillian parrot José Carioca, the figurine was created in 1946 by Shaw Pottery and measures 3”x3.5” and 5.75” tall. Jose is in very good condition with minor imperfections in the glaze. Through the 1940s and 1950s, the Evan K. Shaw Pottery company and its sister companies, Metlox and American Pottery, produced a wide range of ceramics. In 1943, they acquired the license to produce a range of Disney ceramics. These companies are no longer in business, and their highly desirable figurines are increasingly rare.
