Second Chance Tuesday - French But Made in Occupied Japan
These two figurines have a great look... with the French "Napoleon" style military garb to the lovely maiden they have a fantastic appeal. They are marked "Made in Occupied Japan."
All items made in Japan during the time it was occupied by allied forces, after World War II, were marked this way or just "occupied Japan." This is why it is unique to find some collectibles made during this small window of time.
Come back and visit every Tuesday when I highlight an antique from my store that I think deserves a "Second Chance" with a pretty sweet discount for the day. (Today I'm taking 20% off!)
The figurines above are available here for purchase.
