    Hello, I want to show you this nice figurine. Hope you will like it.
    This is a rare figurine of romantic Ukrainian girl LOST IN THOUGHTS.
    It was made in 1960s at the Kyiv porcelain factory by a lady sculptor.
    It is interesting because it does not have any features of "builder of communism", just a beautiful Ukrainian girl, probably in love. It is rare because it is not at all typical for socialist realism style. Also, she wears a Ukrainian embroidered shirt "vyshyvanka" which was considered "nationalistic" under the Soviet Union and Ukrainian headdress style. If in 1960s you would show up in the street in "vyshyvanka", the police would stop you and start asking "questions". It was approved only for concerts and performances.
    I will sell it as I have a duplicate.

    Thank you for sharing, Natasha. Is it possible for you to show a picture of the mark? It could help us identify other figurines from this factory in the future.

    Don..... thanks for your interest. Unfortunately, I cannot upload the picture of the mark. It says an "error occured". I tried to upload it in different ways but failed....
