Yeah, some little ceramic figure, possible a souvenir.
I thought the poses of the hula dancers looked a bit more animated than that of the figure
on the jar and the woman on the jar looks a bit more erotic than a hula dancer. So I went
a Goggling to see what I could find!
Gawd!, I hope this isn't consider ceramic porn....:$
but not much more risque than what's on the prop!?!
:unsure better censor it anyway, even if it is just ceramic........
This one even has a flower by her side like the prop.
Certainly too risque for me to do anymore searching, things there *I* don't want
to see, but you gents may not object!?
Seems there were figures like the one on the prop jar that were 3D ceramic pin-up girls
figurines in the 1950s.
ceramic pin up figurines and ceramic burlesque pin up figures bring up a few. With some
good Googling one might be lucky enough to find the actual vintage 'girl'!
Guess it would be a moot point to wish you happy hunting!?
EDIT: After studying the woman on the jar a bit more, and doing a bit more searching
even though I said I wouldn't, she does look decidedly Hawaiian or other Islander.
Maybe it was a mermaid figurine?
Most of the pin-up girls figurines look too All American Girl, and the hula dancers
look too "happy".
Why doesn't Google just show me the right one so I can move on along!? :lol
