Most head vases in the 50’s and 60’s were made out of pottery but a few were made out of finer porcelain and the Ucagco company was one of the Japanese imports that did so. This vase is no exception in that it features lots of detailing to give her that Victorian look with an elaborate head dress, tight curly locks and a beautiful complexion. She features a base that she is perched upon much like older figurines and statues. Her delicate applied rose completes her Victorian look. Her Victorian sister is also available for sale (see last photo) and I would love to entertain an offer to keep them together! This one is a bit harder to find than the sister with the wider hat.
Condition: Excellent squeaky clean inside and out condition having no chips, cracks or crazing. She doesn’t even have the glaze manufactured glaze drips that these Ucagco ladies are prone too.
