My wife bought this neat little ceramic figure at the estate liqudation of a WWII French war bride. He was found in the a box in the attic with other vintage clothes. etc from the 1940s. I think he's a Buddha figure, and possibly a scholar's tool "brush lick". We figure that he was brought back from Japan by the woman's US Army career Serviceman husband -- who was stationed in Japan after WWII.
There's a maker's mark impressed into his back. Can anyone translate?
Well, any info would be greatly appreciated.
