KELLOGGS

English cereal premuims. Most were made either from Crescent molds or sculpted from the Crescent master figures. I find some with paint like most English made figures from this era, but it is possible they were not factory painted as they were included with a food product. Those that are painted suffer from the same paint loss like other figures from the 50-60s. Under each base is 'KELLOGGS THE GREATEST NAME IN CEREALS".
