These C. Alan's are no longer available for purchase. This page is just for people that are interested in information on the figurines in personal collections.
Unfortunately, we do not appraise C. Alan Johnson Figurines.
The following is from a "C. Alan Johnson Figurine Collection" pamphlet :
"What is it about C. Alan Johnson's Alaska Figurines that attract collectors the world over? Joy, warmth, a certain whimsey... and beneath, a timeless quality. C. Alan Johnson's Alaska Figurines are both endearing and enduring: each piece is a cherished moment captured forever in clay.
In 1961, Johnson and his young family spent a memorable spring whaling season in the small arctic village of Point Hope. Their experienced in Point Hope continue to be the touchstone of Alan's work. His memories, and the feelings they evoke, again and again inspire him to create figurines that embody the spirit of Alaska.
With the help of his wife, Suzanne, the first Alaska Figurines were presented in 1958. The family business includes their son, Keith, and a small staff of dedicated and skilled artisans. Together they produce the beautiful and intricately handcrafted Alaska Figurines.
The Result of these efforts are highly prized. Johnson's work, which includes watercolor paintings, prints and bronze sculpture, may be found in private and corporate collections world wide."
When the figurines were still being produced we included a copy of this pamphlet with every figurine sold. The pamphlets were covered in photos of all of the figurines that were still in production that year, including the new one in production as the artwork on the cover. I'm inclined to think that the pamphlet is a collectable itself!
