Have you ever come across a figurine that just doesn't look professionally painted, or looks like it was done in your son's art class?
Well, that's because it probably was. Holland Mold is not a manufacturer of porcelain figurines. They manufactured ceramic molds ready to paint for ceramic companies, craft stores, schools, and amateur painters. I often wondered why I often see the same figure, painted in different colors, or a different style. Now I know.
The Holland Mold Company was founded in 1946 by Frank Hollendonner. Holland Mold flourished for fifty-one years.
Various ceramic designs can be found with the Holland Mold mark, some of which are high-fired professional items. But the majority of pieces are frequently found made by the work of a ceramic hobbyist/student.
