This mermaid figurine doubles as a thimble holder. The mermaid looks life-like, and in her habitat, due to her hair flowing in the underwater current as she sits on the coral seat. The lovely white porcelain is unglazed except for the mermaid''s fin and the thimble in which the shiny glaze highlights this great piece. The mark on the bottom says QUON-QUON MCML,XXX JAPAN. A fun gift to give to the seamstress in your life! Condition: very good; Circa: 1980 c.; Heigth: 5 1/2''; Width: 4''
