Beautiful hand painted porcelain figurine of a Japanese lady holding some sort of basket; approx 8" (20cm) tall. There is no maker shown other than "Italy" hand painted inside the base. There is a small graze to the glazing on her right sleeve and to the top of her head, also some light damage and wear to the gilded frills at the base; there is also a small glazing fault to the lady's chin which can be seen in the photos. No other damage noted and this displays well. I do not know how old this figure is but it is beautifully made.
