This amusing ceramic vintage figurine from Czechoslovakia, made in the 1930s, is a match holder, toothpick holder, or planter in the shape of a policeman with wide-open pockets and a worried expression. The little man has wide eyes and a big red mouth. He's wearing a brown helmet, orange double breasted jacket, and lemon yellow pants. His arms are clasping a billy club behind his back. This is an adorable example of Czechoslovakian figurines and is highly collectible.

The statue is in good condition. It has a hairline crack in the back (see picture); two small chips on the pockets; and one even smaller chip on the base (might be a manufacturing flaw). He has some wear to his finish, particularly on the helmet and buttons. He's been used as a planter and has some staining inside; I did not attempt to clean him up, since some collectors prefer to handle that themselves.

Size: 5 1/4 inches tall x 4 1/2 inches wide (13.3 x 11.4 cm)
