I’ll bet I’m keeping you pretty busy this morning! This cute little guy is likely another piece that is old but not particularly valuable, but he is charming:)

This is a 1930's to 1940's Japanese porcelain match holder in the shape of

beggar asking for tips in his big white hat. This piece is valued at $45 to $55.

There are a lot of match holder collectors out there and these in strange shapes have

kept a good value when other porcelain has fallen.

To end this one, please click the five stars in the upper right and hit submit.
A good feedback is the only way I am paid by the site.

Sorry. Guest soap

That is brilliant repurposing.
