Catalog No. CS10
Description: Stoneware, 5", unlidded, set of four.
Issue Year: 1977
Edition Limit: Unlimited
Manufacturer: Ceramarte (Brazil)
This set of four “Bud Girls” is distinguishable from later sets primarily by its blue filigree borders and the fact that each central decoration contains the words “Bud Girl” and “Anheuser-Busch, St. Louis, MO.” It should be noted that examples of the CS20/CS21 Bud Girls have been observed with blue filigree (CS10-type) borders and Ceramarte markings. However, these should be considered neither CS10, 20 nor 21.
For reasons that are not currently clear, the “red dress” Bud Girl (shown at right) appears in the market place with far greater frequency that the other three. The “fancy dress” Bud Girl (below) is the second most frequently seen. Their relative lack of rarity is generally reflected in the prices they command in the secondary marketplace.
Red Dress: $60-$80
Fancy Dress: $75-$100
Seated/Blue Dress: $100-$150 (each)
