Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
You are looking at a great pair of antique, porcelain mermaid plaques.  Each mermaid features long blond hair tied with a bow at the top, and they're holding starfish-shaped umbrellas.  The handles of the umbrellas as well as the bows have gold-gilded accents.  The tails of each mermaid feature an opalescent glaze so that they have a light rainbow quality over the scales.  The details are hand painted, the quality of which is evident in the delicate facial features.  They're unbranded pieces, which can be indicative of Occupied Japan items, but the soft style leads me to believe they're much older.  They measure: 5 x 3 1/2 inches.

Condition Notes:
They are both in good condition, but have some clear signs of wear.  There is a minor chip on one of the corners of one of the umbrellas, and each has had the tail fin broken, and glued back on.  Up close, the repair is clear, at a distance, it's not noticeable.  There is no marring, or color-loss to any of the rest of either piece, the damage on the tail of each is all there is to speak of.
