Imperial Porcelain Co Hillbilly Figures

no.029 2010-07-01

Paul Genter worked with Paul Webb at Imperial Porcelain Co in Ohio to create figures based on Webb's Mountain Boys cartoon series (see article 14). The individual hand painted figures are more fragile than similar planters and hard to find undamaged. Jug Guy above has a repaired leg.

Our Chicken Guy has a reglued chicken. Woman on Knees has a lot of fractures.

The usually affordable salt and pepper shaker set is often found in good shape since it doesn't have the spindly arms and legs.

Check out the characterful hand painted Doc figure. Guess which shaker is pepper.
