Each of these two figurines measure 3 " tall and are marked simply "Made in Occupied Japan." This seated man and woman wear the favored Colonial attire and are each sitting quite properly in a detailed, suitable period, chair. The set is without chips, nicks or breaks and the paint is bright and intact. (Please pardon the dust.) Characteristic of these hand painted figures the features are not as exact as mechanically produced and decorated figures.
Colonial Dress was a common theme of porcelain figurines produced in Japan during the occupied years Circa 1945 -1952. Most of the figurines that were exported during the occupation were created between 1947 -1952. The desire for these figurines waxes and wanes among collector's. Items made within this time period in history will become harder to find as they can spoil rather easily with chips, nicks and or paint loss. "Made in Occupied Japan" items that have remained in very good to excellent condition will always be desirable.
The price is for both.
Other figures from this time period are available in this shop at the time of this listing.
