Grandma Grandpa Music Box Plays Theres No Place Like Home Price Imports Japan
Grandma Grandpa Music Box Plays Theres No Place Like Home Made by Price Imports Japan. This charming, vintage porcelain Senior Couple is made with fine details and features a man and woman having coffee and reading the newspaper. Musical base clearly plays the old favorite song, "There's No Place Like Home" when round plastic pedestal is turned. Wood bottom is removable and has gold foil sticker that reads, "a Price Import Japan" and I believe it is from the 1960's or before. Price Imports was established in 1930. Cream colored plastic pedestal is embossed "Sankyo Made in Japan".
In excellent condition with no chips, cracks, crazing and beautiful handpainted details. Both figurines have sweet faces are finely detailed with eyelashes, eyebrows, blushed cheeks and lips. See photos from many angles to appreciate its beauty!
The music box base they are on has a rounded rectangular design measuring 5-7/8 inches long by 3-7/8 inches wide. When the plastic pedestal base is wound, the music plays and the sweet couple turns in a circle. Always be careful not to over wind - 3 times maximum is recommended.
Measures 7 inches tall overall and 5-1/4 inches wide from Grandpa's elbow as he holds a newspaper and the apron bow on the back of Grandma's floor length skirt. Glaze has soft smooth surface...lovely soft paint colors on white glazed porcelain.
Darling anniversary gift for your parents or grandparents, or a great wedding gift for an elderly bride and groom!
