Who doesn’t love the Pink Panther? I mean what’s not to love about the expression of resignation on our Panther’s face – he looks like he really couldn’t give a darn! There’s a bit of confusion about where he was made though – the obvious answer is Japan as there’s a sticker which reads “RO Japan” (Royal Orleans Japan) on the base, but I think our chap may actually be American: also on the base is “UAC Geoffrey”, which I think may be a link to the United China and Glass Company (UCAGCO), which was based in New Orleans and whose figurines were also stamped “Japan”. Regardless of where he comes from though, our Pink Panther is quite delightful! He’s not massive, but he’s in perfect nick, and given that he’s the only one I’ve ever come across, he’s probably quite a rare find!
Dimensions: 13cm tall; Base measures 6cm long x 4.5 cm wide
