The sticker on the bottom identifies them as having been hand painted by Ruane Manning in 1973. I didn’t make up the name, Stoney Maloneys. They must have been named that by the artist. This is one of those yard sale items that most people would walk right by. If you see one, don’t pass it up. Besides being very cute (imho), turns out they are quite collectible too, surprising as that may be to most. Who doesn’t love a mom and dad and their newborn?
