Offering a pair of beautiful, vintage Japanese pottery boy and girl figures.
These each measure 10" in height and are wide and sturdy. The style of pottery features bare clay with a touch of glazing on the robes and animals the children carry.
I was told these are festival figures made for the traditional Girl and Boy festivals of Japan, held to honor children. The girl here carries a cat or kitten and the boy a bird, perhaps a dove.
The pair are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or crazing. The only mark on the bottom is an old paper sticker that says; Japan.
