Porcelain Dutch Boy Standing Calendar or Card Holder, Made in Japan

The darling Dutch Boy rests his arm on the lustre decorated frame which holds the calendar. The piece measures about 4" high and 4-1/2" wide.

Excellent condition! No chips, no cracks, no wear to the paint. The original calendar (protected over the years in a glassine envelope) is included. This would also be great to display a shop or business card.

The holder has an impressed "Made in Japan" mark on the back. I date this c.1924, because the original calendar shows November 1st as a Saturday. In 1924 Saturday fell on November 1st. In no other year from 1921 to 1940, did that date fall on a Saturday. According to Sandra Andracht's book the "Made in Japan" mark was only used from 1921-1940.
