    I have had a many days of "random acts of buying (A Lot)" to avoid going home empty handed during my many thrift shop outings over the last 5 months. This piece is one of them. It caught my interest due to a lot of you CWer's collections of either porcelain/ceramic/pottery, mannequin, displays, figurine, art deco, antique, vintage, hood ornaments, etc.....that have for some time overly-impressed me over the last almost 2 years since I joined this site. I have not had much success finding info on this piece, which is okay, but neither the less will still post mostly because so many of you CWers opened many doors for me as a collector & admirer of vintage & antiquities.
    This wonderfully designed ceramic/porcelain (maybe Geisha) figurine measures almost 9 inches tall, but displays an intriguing design of celebration, presentation, & harmony. For a $1.50 I just had to have it! =^'

      I think she's just wonderful Tom.
      She just has it - that posture and fluidity!
      Clever Japanese at work here - I couldn't have walked past her either!

      This is great Tom :).....Glad I'm not alone in the "going home empty handed" department. I hate that but some days are just a wash. Then there's the opposite days where you find so much you can't believe it, but that sure doesn't happen very often.

      Really beautiful, I did a quick search and found some information the company name was Mahana Importing Company based out of NY as shown in your picture. The magazine Antique Trader Antiques & Collectibles Guide 2010 ISBN-10: 144020361X, ISBN-13: 978-1440203619 on page 140 indicates that Mahana had purchased many of the ceramic molds from the Ceramic ArtsStudio Japan (based out of Madison Wisconsin) prior to it becoming defunct. Google books has a preview of the page in the book which has much more details. - Soul
