Even though this is marked 1985, its design reminds me of a pop art sculpture or Picasso's famous "hand with flowers" painting. Marked "Balloon Expressions (Castle Ent., Brea, CA) 1985" on the bottom, it stands about 6" high, and the base is 3" x 2-1/4". The hole is 1/2" in diameter. This ceramic hand figurine was apparently designed to hold a balloon bouquet but you can use it to hold a small bunch of dried flowers, a pen/pencil, or a small flag or sign for a party/wedding reception. It would also make a simple background prop for photographing your handmade jewelry or other small crafts. Bottom has shelf wear but there are no cracks, chips, or repairs.
