This “mini” bud vase is absolutely exquisite.
It is one of the many small figurines made in Japan, specifically for export between 1945 – 1952.
With a very bright white background, the small puppy, sporting a large red bow, really stands out.
The metallic gold painted accents, the puppy’s bright black eyes and spot, and the tiny red heart, all combine to make this simple figurine a real treasure.
It measures 2 1/4″ tall x 1 1/4″ long x 1″ wide, and it is in excellent condition.
It’s whimsical appeal makes it the perfect gift for a child to use with her dolls.
It is also a rare find for those who collect “Occupied Japan” pieces, or who love the idea of starting a vintage dog collection for a young friend, or family member.
