I need help identifying this small figurine. Boy with dog, both carrying bottles (maybe milk). I picked this category but do not know if it is where it belongs.
It is made of a very thin (eggshell type) material. You can see through it when a light is held behind it. Sorry, I have no idea what it is.
The base maybe celluloid. It measures 3.85 inches long & 2.17 inches wide.
Bottom of base to top of boys head is 3.24 inches.
Total weight is 39 grams or 1.35 ounces.
The only markings I can find are on the back shoulders of the boy. It is a 5 pedal flower with MADE IN JAPAN in a semi circle below the flower. One of the outlines of a pedal goes back through the center of the flower.
This is an item I remember my grandfather having for years on a shelf.
Any information is appreciated.
Thanks for looking,
