From my late mother's childhood collection of miniatures gathered in the 1940s:

A wooden mortar & pestle. Mortar is a shade over 1" tall, pestle is 1 3/4" long. $20

A hand-painted pottery pitcher made in Italy. White with floral highlights, 1 1/2" tall. $20

A ceramic basket, made in Japan. White. 1" x 5/8" x 1". $30

A miniature ceramic candlestick, made in France by Limoges. Less than 1" tall, this delightful item is a white candleholder with gold highlights, a blue candle with a gold flame, and a floral accent. $25

A peach pit basket - a tiny carved decorative basket. I don't know for sure but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that my grandfather made it for my mother. In US history these kinds of items carved from peach pits began to be seen in the 1860's, created by Civil War soldiers with a lot of time on their hands - I don't believe this one is that old. 1" tall. $20

A peach pit monkey. A delightful and detailed image of a monkey biting its own tail, intricately carved from a peach pit. 1 1/2" long. $30

A small decorated pitcher made in Mexico. Terra cotta, maroon with black, white & cream stripes and designs. 2 3/4" tall. $25
