    I am wondering if this little bear was a "Made in Japan" from before the war. The face is hand painted and the body is covered by these little clear crystals, maybe crushed quartz? I don't know but I know the experts will. The bear stands 1 1/2" tall. Thanks in advance! bear 1.jpg bear 2.jpg bear 3.jpg bear 4.jpg bear 5.jpg bear 6.jpg

    Seeing some called “sugar coated” but there’s probably a real name for it.

    Wonder if there was a line of these figures, similar to/based on the popular Snow Babies. It really does look like sugar, but if you decide to taste, be careful. Could be crystals grown from something chemically different altogether & quite possibly not good for you.

    In hand, snow babies are unlike OP's bear. I must admit I don't think I've ever come across one.

    Snow babies are German and of very nice quality.
