American Colonial Dress was a common theme of porcelain figurines produced in Japan during the occupied years Circa 1945 -1952. The desire for these figurines waxes and wanes among collector's. Items made within this time period in history will eventually become harder to find as they are rather easily spoiled 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. This seated man and woman wear the favored Colonial attire as if they just walked out of a Pastoral Scene. The set is without chips, nicks or breaks and the paint is bright and intact. Characteristically, these are hand painted so the features will not be as exact as mechanically produced and decorated figures. Each measures 3 3/4" tall and are marked simply "Made in Occupied Japan."
