Japanese Ceramic Bathing Beauty Posed Upon a Shell
This pretty lady is posed seated upon a fancy snail shell. The material is bisque with a shiny glaze. The glaze is a bit iridescent over the shell. The lady is blonde. Don't let her demure expression fool you; she is holding her breast with one hand. She has brown shoes and a green 1920's bathing suit that covers her to her knees. The figurine is hand painted with good workmanship and nice detail. The shell is open; this piece could be used in a aquarium, or it could hold something on your vanity, possibly lipsticks. "Made in Japan" is stamped on the bottom in black. This is a Depression-era piece. It is in excellent original condition. The size is 4 1/2" X 3" X 5" tall.
