Vintage Figural Smoker Ashtray Big Mouth Singing Man

This handsome fellow is singing his heart out! Below his bowtie is written, "By the Light of the Silvery Moon". The mouth is the ashtray and the smoke comes out of the ears. It measures 5&1/2 inches tall, and is in excellent condition. The only flaw I see is that a couple of the letters have worn from the word, "silvery". See photo. There are no marks, these were made by Shafer and Vater, and later copied in Japan. I suspect this is Shafer and Vater because of the quality and careful, detailed painting, but as I'm not at all sure, I am pricing it as a Japan piece. If anyone has a specific way for me to tell, please email with questions.
