Evan K. Shaw White Rabbit

Next in the Shaw series is the White Rabbit. He's a cute little guy, with his red heart on both the front and back of his herald's uniform.

Interestingly, the red heart is cold painted over-glaze, as is most true red paint on ceramic figures. There's something about red that doesn't agree with the firing process on these older figures, so that color had to be painted after firing over-glaze. As such, you see lots of these White Rabbits with flaking or missing hearts. If any of you out there besides me collect Santa figures from the 1950s you'll know what I'm talking about.
