I have a figurine that I would like to know more about. It is a little girl with closed eyes and long lashes but she is wearing oversized slippers. She is carrying a floral basket in one hand and, in the other, are 2 flowers. She is wearing a tied scarf over the back of her hair. On the bottom of the little girl is JAPAN. Thanks so much!
Internet research only
This is from the 1950's after WWll, they started marking items out of Japan with just the word " Japan " this is a Hummel Style Figurine, ( sort of cashing in on the Hummel look). They were imported to the US and sold in Department Stores.
She is estimated to sell on the secondary retail market for an average $25.00-30.00, depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, I would check with your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for. As antiques and collectibles are subject in selling price to different areas across the country..( Larger Metropolitan Areas bring higher prices then Smaller Cities. ).If I can be of any further help, please feel free contacting me, if there is a problem with my answer please feel free contacting me before leaving a negative feedback, any problem can be resolved.
New Rating System, Explanation:Please Rate Me Only, not the Website.
Also, please rate my service to you not the price I have to report, I cannot control what we find in recorded information on sells, and not all areas are recorded so values can vary.
I am a appraiser who is a user of the site to answer questions for customers who come here. I do my very best to offer you the most current values and any information I can find for you.
A good feed back rating lets JustAnswer/ Pearl know I did my job and therefore I get credit and compensation for my work. At no additional cost to the customers! So please leave a good feed back 3 stars & up or 3 smiley faces & up, not "Helped a little" or "I expected more" or "Bad Service", "Poor Service" I am not sure which one may be used ) it is very much appreciated. Unless you do not feel a good feedback is warranted, then please let me know what else I can do for you, ( if anything ) to help get a good feedback by, clicking on the " Continue the Conversation Link". My good rating is very important to me and something I strive to keep.
And if you would like to use me on any further questions. It works much better putting my name ( Glenda ) in your question , then I will be sure to get it. Requesting me expires in just a short time.
It has been a pleasure working for you, I look forward to it again.
Thank you so much
