This is a wonderful art sculpture of and Native American Chief by artist Stephen Herrero titled "Patriarch". It is signed and dated, the date looks like 19 something. I can't make it all out. It still has the original sticker on the back that says Patriarch #3001 USA. These discontinued pieces are becoming very rare. Mill Creek Studios burned down, so these are no longer available. This is a wonderful Indian chief in full feather head dress. It is lovely tones of brown, rust, tan, and turquoise...

This is a really cool piece of metalware marked made in Hong Kong. I believe it is a miniature tin tray, but it could be a coaster. It has a scene an Asian artist or calligrapher doing his work. It measures 1/2 deep and 4.25 inches across. It is in very good condition, no dents, very little wear, but it does have an ink mark on the bottom. I believe this to be vintage, but it is an auction item so I am not sure of the age or maker.
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.
