Decked out in a cherry red outfit, playing a concertina while perched against a log vase, our whimsical big eared, elf with an impish smile is sure to make you smile! He is 5.5 inches wide and 5.5 inches high and is 3 inches at its widest point. The oval opening at the top of the log is 1.75 inches wide by 1.5 inches. He is in very good vintage condition. There are no observable chips or crazing.

Please know that any ceramic piece surviving over half a century will have a few "character flaws". Often we will note imperfections that a casual observer will not notice. Please refer to the photos. The red cold paint is almost entirely in tact, which is quite unusual for a piece of this age. There is approximately less than 5% overall paint loss. Because these were originally hand-painted is not unusual to see some minors paint splatter on the figurines. We note some red droplets on the log , face and stray brush strokes on his cheek. There is it's a very small fleabite at the tip of his bangs. A glaze pop on the back of the log is noted. The gold trim on the instrument is still shiny and and 90% intact. There is a small pinprick hole inside the left ear. We also noticed a small indentation on his collar that was -probably made before the red coat paint was applied. Under magnification we did note a small indentation under the paint on his nose tip, and an approximately 2 mm impact crack on the side of his nose where it meets the face which gives him a unique whimsical look. The original silver foil Ucagco Ceramics, Japan sticker is on the base. Most likely made in 1950's to 1960's.

This is for the person who loves the nicks and scratches that make up life's little stories... one who feels the nostalgia of yesteryear in a timeworn piece. These charming vintage ceramic Japanese elves are getting harder and harder to find. Imagine how cute this highly collectible little guy would be in in your home. Absolutely guaranteed to bring Christmas cheer to any spot. A perfect holder for a bottle brush tree, or a sprig of holly! How cute nestled with greens on your mantel. Bring a smile to your home today!

We are sure that this elf was once proudly displayed in someone's home at Christmas. He was selected to bring a cozy feel to your home and to add just a bit of yesteryear charm to your decor.
