Occupied Japan Two Color Colonial Figurine Playing Violin Vintage Bisque 1945-52


This is an occupied japan figurine from a barn pick, we actually had a whole box of them. These were heavily reproduced at one time but these all appear to be original. They have paint wear and colors consistent with the time period and marks on the base consistent with originals. "Occupied Japan" (OJ) is a term used for the time period from 1945 (after World War II) through April 25, 1952; it was during this time that the Allies "occupied" Japan.. It was a very short period of time, and is not considered a flattering statement to make to the country which was occupied of course. These pieces are so colorful, some are made with more detail than others. There is almost always some minor paint loss, as they were cold painted I believe.

This is a single figurine, in two colors, almost a light red / rust color and white. 8 inch figurine is playing the violin . There is a hint of pink to the color as well. The figurine is unlike the others I have from the same barn ( literally a barn with hoards of old inventory from some collector). This piece is marked on the base as shown. No chips or cracks and I think his paint is in excellent condition given his age.

Generally, buyers pay the additional costs such as duties, taxes, and customs clearance fees. Import charges can vary widely but are most commonly based on the price and type of item, package weight and dimensions, origin country, and the taxes, duties, and fees of the destination country.
Most sellers on Etsy are unable to predict which of these fees, if any, will be applied, and Etsy does not expect sellers to calculate or collect these fees or taxes. This information should be clarified in sellers' shop policies. You can learn more about shop policies here.
