things that I collect, things that I make and things that I like.
Where they made Funny Face mugs and pitchers in the 1960's and 1970's. Long since closed.
Unfortunately, the Fiedler and Fiedler (F&F) mold factory in Dayton, OH, closed in the 1980s. What makes these 2 photos so cool is that it shows both spray painting with mold shields (like the hats) and hand-painting on the details (like eyes & teeth).Jim Rash.
It's almost unreal to think of ANY such merchandising being done here in the US nowadays. Looks like a fun job as those places go--they sure made fun products.
Thanks for posting the pictures of the workers at F & F Mold & Die in Dayton. I have a large F & F Mold cup collection and appreciated seeing these pictures.Tricia LorenzToledo, OH8-30-08
