Enesco Alice Head Vase

After the Hagen-Renaker company lost it license in 1960 (or thereabouts) Disney figurines were produced for sale at Disneyland by Enesco. They produced a lot of figures, but they only produced one for Alice: a head vase.

The Enesco head vases are really really hard to find. They made a total four: Alice, Cinderella, Snow White, and Mary Poppins. All but Mary Poppins have a very flat, bisque finish, Mary has a high-gloss finish. And all have little applied bits that make them really fragile. Alice's applied bit is the hand holding the teacup.

Head vases have a large following in general, so these Disney ones cross collecting lines, being sought after by head vase collectors as well as Disney collectors. Expect to pay several hundred dollars if you find one.
