From the 1960-1962 era, the Graduation Angel in Pink Stamp Box is one of the earlier creations of Muriel Joseph George. This piece features a removable top revealing a box that one could store stamps (or any little items) in. She stands 4/ 75" tall and is in pristine condition. Listed in "Josef Originals A Second Look" (1996) by Jim and Kaye Whitaker on page 86, she is valued at $45-55.
Additional information....Muriel Joseph George also created a boy version by the same name "Graduation Angel Stamp Box." He is a beautiful angel dressed in....yes, PINK! I am amazed that the artist would include a pink version for a boy...but she did. Please watch for a listing to be added soon. I also have seen a blue version. It appears that these were early pieces as the "pink" boy has the ink stamp, which is an indication of the time frame.
