Holt Howard was a company known for producing ceramics and other decorative items in the mid-20th century. The company was founded in 1949 by Holt Howard and his brother-in-law, John Howard, and was based in New York City. Holt Howard was known for its high-quality, hand-painted ceramics, which included various items such as figurines, planters, vases, and other decorative objects. The company’s ceramics were popular in the 1950s and 1960s, and many of the items produced by Holt Howard are now considered collectors’ items.
One of the most famous lines of ceramics produced by Holt Howard was its Pixieware line, which featured figurines of pixies and other mythical creatures. The Pixieware line was introduced in 1959 and quickly became popular due to its whimsical design. Holt Howard also produced other lines of ceramics, including its Coquette line, which featured figurines of elegant, sophisticated women, and its holiday-themed ceramics, which included items such as Christmas ornaments and figurines.
The company went out of business in the late 1960s.
