Paula belated birthday wishes figurine W-301
" If I'm late for this year May I be the first to wish you Happy Birthday for Next Year" is the caption on this vintage Paula figurine. Popular in the 1970's, these adorably tacky statues made their way into the hearts of many collectors. These are similar to the Russ W Berries figurines in many ways with one essential difference: Paula figurines are made of wood then coated with a thin plastic resin. The bottoms reveal the natural wood. Still has felt on the bottom of this one. This one is stamped, dated 1972 W-301 and measures 5" tall. This Girl stands complete with her plastic birthday cake.
