Super Cute Vintage piece made by Napco in Japan during the 1950's. This kitchen container is very unique and rare since it is made by Napco - there was a very similar "stinky cheese" container made by Holt Howard in the Merry Mice line which is the one that can be more readily be found from that time period.
Lid has a cute little hand painted cartoon mouse sitting next to a chunk of cheese - a vertical striped design goes around the edge of the lid. Base of container has the words "Stinky Cheese" written on the front side - underneath is marked with the gift craft Japan logo and it still retains the original Napco foil sticker.
This delicate ceramic container is in really great condition overall - there is a tiny flake of paint missing from the edge of the mouse ear and on the bowl there is a little nick off the top edge as well as a bubble on the rim - think that one was there when it was made since it is covered with glaze - otherwise there are no major chips, cracks, repairs or crazing - hand painted colors and details are clear, bright and overall intact. This piece stands about 4" high and measures just over 4.25" in diameter.
