Collection: Hand Painted & Gold Luster Louise Abel Bears

Small Batch- Limited Supply!

Hand-painted by artist Heidi Shannon. A truly unique, one of a kind piece to add to (or start!) your collection. 

In 1934, Rookwood designer Louise Abel designed a  paperweight-size sculpture of a seated bear. 

    Abel worked with Rookwood Pottery from 1919 to 1932, and the paperweights, bookends, and figurines she crafted largely feature animals. According to a 1943 issue of American Collector, Abel often sketched and modeled her sculptures from animals at the Cincinnati Zoo: “She has more than once sat for hours waiting for one of her subjects to get into a position suitable for modeling.”
