More details about this item

This is a particularly lovely figurine made in Japan for Napco (National Potteries Corp, Cleveland Ohio). She is from their nun series CR 5407, and is dated 1962. This figurine is stamped R5407 and bears its original silver foil Napco label on the bottom. This label was in use from 1956 to 1962. This lovely Catholic nun is wearing a white habit with gold rosary and crosses. In her right hand, she is holding some sort of scientific or medical instrument and at her feet is a rack with 2 small jars and a larger vessel. There is a towel draped over her left arm. These wonderful Napco nun figurines remind me of the movie The Nun's Story with Audrey Hepburn and Peter Finch which came out in 1959 and featured nuns in white habits working in the Congo. Perhaps that movie inspired the white habits and medical paraphernalia associated with these nun figurines. This sweet sister is 5" high and 2.5" wide. She is in excellent condition, free of chips, cracks, or crazing. Thank you for looking. item location: B 3
