This colorful little ceramic piece is based on the German Halloween veggie candy containers. Veggie people and animals were a popular holiday decoration and this piece is small but clever. The head might be a lemon with a patty pan squash for a hat. The body appears to be a red bell pepper and the limbs look like squash. It also appears that this character is walking on two bananas but it’s all up for interpretation. It is stamped Japan on the bottom and 15 is written in grease pencil which may have been the original price.
It measures about 4 3/8” tall by 3 ¾” long and it is in very good condition with a minimal amount of paint wear, no chips, cracks or other damage.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
