Notes: Designer Robyn Sikking produced and sold figurines from her own pottery, Robyn’s Ceramics, prior to working for Hagen-Renaker. Squirrels A-271 and A-272 are slightly reduced versions of Robyn’s original designs, and the first HR colorways imitated her bisque grey and brown finishes with white “frosted” details.

Some of the bisque pieces have a short wire inserted near the tip of the tail, to secure the piece in a plant or elsewhere.

Height: 1 ¼”

Designer: Martha Armstrong

Production Dates:

F1965-S1966 (Brown [?])

Notes: This is the Disney “Squirrel” mold from Sleeping Beauty. The colorway is not known. Although it appears on the order forms for two seasons, it may not have been produced at all, possibly because of the close similarity to A-013, Squirrel Mama with Curved Tail, which was also in production at that time. If it exists as a Miniature at all, it is extremely rare.
