This is an adorable vintage made in Japan porcelain scotty dog. He is sitting up on his hind legs, with a little puppy at his feet. It is marked Japan on the base and has some remnants of the red cold painting on his collar. He measures 3.5 inches tall and 1.75 inches across the base. The only damage is a small surface chip to the puppies ear. I wouldn't be very noticeable with a touch of paint.
This is a really rare Pluto the hound dog shaker from the 1940s with the original paper Japan label. I do not have the matching shaker, but this set is listed in the 1999 issue of Garage Sale and Flea Market Annual for $125.00 This little guy is in great condition, a bit of the cold paint is worn on the nose, tail, and collar back. This is a great old piece for the Disney collector. You can't see the shaker holes from the front, so he would still look great as a figurine.
This is a funny little open mouth pink frog to hold your rings and things. It is probably to be used by your sink to hold your rings while you wash your hands. The words rings and things is just a decal, but I think it is vintage as it has a slight amount of age glaze crazing. It measures 2.25 inches high, and 2.75 inches long. No cracks and no chips.
This is a magnificent matching set of vintage chicken figurines. Both are fancy chickens, called either silkies, or cochins, which means they have feathers on their feet. This matching rooster and chicken are beautifully painted with both airbrushing and handpainting. They are both marked UG Made in Japan in black. The red cold paint on the combs and waddles show very minor wear. The roosters measures 7 inches tall, and 5 inches long, the hen is 5.5 inches tall, and 4.5 inches long...
This is a lovely vintage elephant figurine all dressed up to carry royalty. The glaze is a semi-opaque caramel or butterscotch color that collects in the details, and has a some age glaze crazing typical of vintage pieces. It is ceramic or pottery and has part of a label on the bottom that says vanminh. It looks like and Indian elephant, but I think that label is Vietnamese. It measures 5 inches high and 6 inches long. Other than the crazing there are no chips, and no cracks.
This is an adorable plate by Jennifer Garant in the Dollnation pattern. It features a lady in a black and white dress, with a funny hairdo, taking about 8 dalmatian dogs for a walk in the park. It measures 8.25 inches in diameter. It is in great shape, no chips, and no cracks, and no visible signs of wear. This would make a great gift for either the dalmatian love, the polka dot lover, or the plate collector.
This is a wonderful porcelain box with a black bottom, and a white raised relief cat and calla lily design. I would image it was probably a cigarette or trinket box. It measures 1 and 5/8 inches high, and 3.75 by 3 inches across. It does have a repair to the corner of the bottom and one corner on the top. On the top there is a small point missing in the repair. I have shown the damage in the photo. It is still a wonderful piece for the cat lover. It is unmarked, I do not know the age or maker.
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. They are porcelain and probably vintage, but I am not sure, they are auction pieces. They are in very good condition, no chips, and no cracks.
This is a adorable set of turkey gobbler salt and pepper shakers. They are hand painted and very colorful. The body of the paint is under the glaze, but the waddles are cold painted red and have a bit of wear. They are both in good shape, no chips other than a very tiny flea bite to the glaze one the Tom's tail, no cracks, they do have a bit of age glaze crazing, and are missing the stoppers. I believe they are vintage because of the crazing, but they are unmarked and I don't know the maker...

Lovely little painted pony in native American ceremonial dress that is a cream or creamer pitcher. I have seen this type of design on Enesco Trail of Tears type ponies.

This cute piece measures 3.75 inches high and 6 inches long. The only damage is a small surface chip on on ear as seen in the photo...
