Vintage Girl in Bonnet with Dog Musical Figurine. Not marked but made in Japan. Retro shoujo style, 1960s-70s.
Material feels like chalkware, clay or plaster. Base is wood.
Very good condition. Top of bonnet has some of the white base showing through, the previous owner had tried to cover it with green marker. Slight crackling of glaze (can be seen on face if scrutinised), this is from normal ageing. No major chips or cracks. Tune plays loud and good. Music is "This old man, he played one".

Hand-painted, nice vibrant colours. She is rather large sized and will look nice in a retro home as a display or for showa-era collectors. She is wearing a Victorian dress with bonnet and hugging a puppy. There is a brownish glaze painted on it to look aged. Her eyes are not exactly level.
Not a toy and not suitable for children. DO NOT overwind!
Hand-carried from the USA.
Size: approx 19.5(H) x 10.5cm(diameter)
