This ceramic doll figure has a glass case, but I took it out to take the photograph. It was given to me by my uncle after I was born (so, it's over 35 years old).

There's a little stick at the bottom of it that fits into a hole in the platform so that it stands upright despite being mostly top-heavy.

The details were carefully hand-painted on. The doll shows a young Japanese girl holding a lantern looking questioningly upward.
