Mermaid Riding Fish Wall Plaque Lefton Norcrest Porcelain Blue Rhinestone Vintage Kitsch Beach Cottage Figurine

This coy little vintage mermaid wall plaque figurine was made in the 1950s by Lefton or Norcrest (I have read that the blue tailed mermaids are by Norcrest, but also often see these attributed to Lefton). It is marked P697 on the back and has a blue Japan sticker. The fish is pearlized white (with lovely blue & pink iridescence) and has a sparkling blue rhinestone eye.

Condition is really wonderful for such a fragile & delicate piece: there is a tiny chip at the back of one fin (not noticeable from the front); bottom tip of the fish's tail and the bottom of the piece is a bit rough, but think this is a normal unglazed area; the mermaid has a dirty arm on the back (looks like pencil marks, but don't know exactly what it is). I've provided close up photos of the most fragile areas (like the mermaid's saucy ponytail and her tiny fingers), which are surprisingly intact.

This cute figurine can be hung on the wall, but also sits happily on a counter or shelf. It is approximately 6.25 inches wide x 6.75 inches tall.
