With features similar to little Hummel girls, this large figurine may represent a young German girl though her apron and large brown shoes also resemble the attire of a young Dutch girl. Her features are sweet and include rosy cheeks, a little nose, and big eyes. She appears to be singing and holding a song book in front of her face. The details of the figure even include "writing" on the pages of the book. She originally would have had a foil label by Thames along with the painted identification number of 2842 on her foot. She was Hand Painted and made in Japan. She is a full 7 3/4" high. There are a few small areas of missing paint (see the back of her hair and the tiny spot on the tip of her right shoe.) There is a very small and smooth dip in the bottom front of her left shoe that is possibly a nick or may have been there from manufacture (please see close up of shoes). Otherwise this 1950's cutie pie does not have chips, cracks, or repairs and has darling features!
