I found another great little 1930's Japanese bisque figurine over the weekend, this time it's the famous European literally fairy tale feline character from the 1500's, Puss in Boots! Doing a little online search, it appears he was originally available in a set with other nursery rhyme characters like Little Red Riding Hood, Little Boy Blue, etc. Pretty good condition compared to some I've seen online as well, paint is still very vibrant, and he's double stamped from his country of origin on his backside and the bottoms of his tiny booted paws. These darn things have become very addictive to my collector sensibilities lately!
Nice, if that's from the 30s, and nobody has busted or chipped it yet, that's a really cool find!
That really is in crazy good shape. I'm always amazed at how well bisque holds up. Neat find.
Where's it from? Just kidding.
My grandmother had similar figurines. Wish we still had them.
Looks like he needs the bucket
