A quality piece of nostalgia imported from Japan by the prestigious Acme China firm, the famous character introduced in Disney's 1940 Pinocchio, Mr. Conscience himself, "Jiminy Cricket." the "Lord High Keeper of the Knowledge of Right and Wrong, Counselor in Moments of Temptation, and Guide along the Straight and Narrow Path." This must have been meant for use as a dresser trinket because Jiminy holds a hairbrush in one hand. Wonderful colors--flat eggshell blue boot with backtab, and Jiminy in high gloss yellow, black, red, fleshtones, and brown. Acme China in above-glaze blue, MIJ mark and also has a stylized "N" in a circle.  Wheatley II, pg 209. Condition report: Excellent.   Item #1056, Price $20.
