This late 40's/early 50's era Porcelain Figurine of a seated gentleman at his piano is stamped "Occupied Japan". It is hand painted porcelain and is two different pieces that go together. This particular piece is rather rare as most pianos are white not brown.
The figurines do show signs of age and wear. There are areas on the man that are white. Most of them are smooth and shiny so obviously were spaces that were not painted when the item was originally made. There are a few places though that feel rough and therefore may be small chips or just not glazed carefully when they were made (see pictures). Also, the piano has a yellowish/brownish areas on the bottom which led us to look closer at the legs. It appears that they may have been repaired and that the brownish area is aged glue that leaked out from the repair. One let appears to have broken off and glued back on and the other appear to have had a crack that glue was applied to as a repair. We tried to get close ups so please see pics of the repairs.
