Figurine "finds" made in Occupied Japan

While scouring one of my favorite charity shops , I came across some figurines for Fifty-cents no less that are stamped with "occupied Japan" on the bottom. I understand that these were made after the WWII ended until 1952. They are really collector's items so I was thrilled to find them. The above one is my favorite I think!














This is a beautiful duck planter which I paid a little more for but loved it!
The girl with a rabbit, china plate with basket and watering can are so cute and what about the DOG drinking from a bowl! These make me happy!


This last one is an oriental vase and also was made in Occupied Japan.

Isn't Occupied Japan stuff the cutest? I love the little girl w/ the rabbit! Also LOVE the rabbit plate. My hubby would like that golfing Santa. When we lived in SC, we had those green lizards on our front porch & deck. Our movers joked that one would probably come in & get in a box while they were loading the truck (it was 105 degrees when we moved). I was afraid I would have them jumping out at me w/ every new box I opened. They probably couldn't have survived the heat. Merry Christmas!

P.S. I also LOVE those older Christmas plates...don't think they're "vintage" yet, are they? They're really classic!

This can't succeed as a matter of fact, that is exactly what I believe.
