This is a very well made chalkware figurine of an Asian woman minstrel, playing a guitar. This lady appears to be either from Japan, or China, and looks probably circa 1940s to 1950s. She is mostly black, with gold accents, and a very nicely detailed face. She is missing very little of her paint, and is of much better quality than most examples I have seen. She measures 7.25 inches tall and 2 and 7/8 inches across the base.
These two matching collie figurines are so cute, and brown and white in color like Lassie. They measure 2.75 inches tall for the sitting one, and 3.25 inches long for the laying one.

This is a wonderful vintage circa 1945 to 1952 occupied Japan figurine of an Asian man with a traditional violin or fiddle, probably a erhu of the "hugin" family of instruments. This is a very nicely painted porcelain piece in shades of burnt sugar, burgundy, and navy. He has traditional clothes and I think he is Chinese, but he could be Japanese. He has a little pillbox hat and long braid, and the side buttoning shirt...
