This aquarium ornament is so very special. This is a weird little mermaid. Not the mermaid of male fantasy: the sexy mermaid. This little girl is more like how mermaids REALLY are: weird creatures of the seas, evolutionary sprouts.

She has green fins for arms, extra green fins on her back, a green crest, and funny little pointy green ears. She has a scaly pink tummy. Her cute face has been carelessly painted, but I think it just adds to her cuteness. She is sitting on…I have no idea what she’s sitting on.

Condition: She has calcification here and there. I am scared to try to clean it off, but I think you can do so with vinegar. There are chips on her ear tips and fin tips.

I think this is a rather rare item. Vintage mermaid figurines and wall plaques are collectible, and pretty well documented online. But in all my searching, I’ve only ever found one other mention of this style of figurine, and it was identified as made in Japan. From the style, I would say the figure dates to the1930s or 1940s.

Swimmy here is 3 inches tall. She’s a really special little girl.
