Willy Johansson Penguin
« on: October 04, 2009, 03:05:01 PM »
Hello I have a heavy clear penguin with a signature which reads Hadeland W.J  I think I have found the signature as Willy Johansson.  I have looked at other Hadeland figurines but their base signature reads just that purely "Hadeland" so now I am confused have I got it right this time. 
The penguin is about 16.5cm tall and the base at the widest points is 6.5cm

Would it be possible to get a clearer image of the signature and the initials?  Craig

I would agree, the initals are not WJ, but WF.  I do not know who those initials belong to......

Just came across this while looking for something else. It looks like WJ to me, especially since Hadeland never had a WF designer.

This is indeed Willy Johansson's signature, well known to all Norwegian collectors.

Thanks to all it has been sat in my animal cupboard for some time now.  It is looking for a new home if anyone is interested.
