Customer Question
I have a couple...

I have a couple of figurines (porceline bisque I think) made in Japan stickers) that I am curious about. One is a boy, the other a girl. Both are holding a basket, both have a tiny hole in their pursed lips, both have closed eyes with heavily painted lashes. paint is very pastel beiges, pink and yellow. They appear to be vintage and have probably been in someone's curio cabinet for some time.

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Both are seated and about 5 inches in height.
