This is a gorgeous ceramic angel and sleeping baby. "God Bless Our Baby" is written on the baby's blanket in gold script. There is a tattered Made in Japan label on the bottom.
The colors appear to be hand painted and there are touches of gold; on the angel's wings, the baby's hair and the stars on the angel's gown.
This piece measures 3 7/8" high x 5" x 5". It is reminiscent of some of Enesco's charming early pieces. I believe it to be a little older, possibly early/mid 50s. There are no chips, cracks or repairs. The piece is fairly heavily crazed, which adds to it's charm. It needs a gentle cleaning as there a few very tiny yellow paint splatters. I've removed some already.
This would make a lovely vintage christening or shower gift. Imagine it in a nursery or a child's bedroom.
