    FLORENCE CERAMICS 'VIVIAN' PORCELAIN FIGURINE

    1950S

    Price Realised  

    FLORENCE CERAMICS 'VIVIAN' PORCELAIN FIGURINE
    1950s
    A porcelain figurine with Florence Ceramics Pasadena, California noted on the bottom next to the name of Vivian -- likely a misspelled reference to Vivien (with an 'e') Leigh who portrayed Scarlett as this figurine looks almost identical to the others made by the same company from their "GWTW" series. Interestingly, Vivien Leigh originally spelled her first name using an 'a' (Vivian) but it was later changed by a producer who thought the 'e' spelling looked more feminine!
