Retro Saturday




This little figurine, probably about six inches high, was purchased a few months ago. It had been standing on a shelf in a thrift shop for a number of weeks.




I believe it is a 'cherub' but one with no wings for some reason! Maybe it lost them along the way......it is in pristine condition and it has no 'markings' on the bottom at all. Anybody recognize it?

  1. Maybe his wings slipped down to form those golden knickers?

  3. I wouldn't know the maker, is probably their rendition of Pan. Cute little fella!

  4. Looks like a kid eating a stick of celery.

    I'm not overly surprised it was on the shelf for weeks, Jim.

    Your header photo is fantastic!!!!

  6. I don't know... but it's cute. We went to a big flea/antique market today (3 floors) but didn't make it through the whole thing. Too hot, and no AC! We're going back when it gets cooler.. I love old stuff!
