Napcoware Village Children Baker Boy and Milkman Figurines, Item C-8811. These two adorable vintage figurines were made by Napco Napcoware and are marked C-8811, once part of a series of children in various occupations called “Village Children”. I have seen several other figurines marked C-8811 that are similar to these in size and coloring, but I have not been able to confirm all figurines in the series. The hand painting is very detailed on both figurines as you can see from the photos; colors are nice soft tones.
Baker Boy wears a chef's hat and is holding what a plate of food with a spoon. Milkman Boy wears a newsboy style cap with a coat and tie and holds up a bottle of milk in one hand and a milk bottle rack in the other.
Each figurine is made of smooth ceramic and each boy sands on a base colored and molded to resemble grass. Each figurine is 3-7/8 inches tall. Base measures 2 inches long by 1-1/2 inches wide. Bottom of each figurine has a red and gold foil label which reads "NAPCOWARE”, a large “N” and “IMPORT JAPAN".
