I’m sure there’s a logical explanation as to why this charming little girl in a pink dress is wearing boxing gloves, but I can’t for the life of me imagine what it is. (Maybe she’s the love-child of Mike Tyson and Glinda the Good Witch?) I found this ceramic figurine (which has “Made in Japan” stamped on the inside of her hollow skirt) at a garage sale yesterday and for a dollar, it was the find of the day.

    She’s completely gorgeous and completely delicate and why on earth she’s in boxing gloves makes no sense at all. All of which means you’re SO lucky I didn’t show up at that garage sale first!

    How tall is she?

    Damn! I was hoping you’d say– oh yeah, I have one of these. It’s from 196- and it was made by… yadda, yadda, yadda. You seem to have first hand experience with about 99% of what’s out there, kitsch-wise. So I could barely wait to post this because there MUST be some story behind it and I was sure you’d know what it was. I’m sure if you ever find out, you’ll let me know.

    In any case, in answer to your question, she stands about 3 1/2″ tall.
