image002  Can you tell me more about this item?



image002  It's a very interesting item. The language is Slavonic with some archaic letters, such "yat"

In Russian those letters disappeared in 1917-1918, but in Bulgarian was used till the end of World War II (not used in 1921-1923)

I think it is Bulgarian. Words on front are well-reading:

"don't know" (sure "know", not "speak")

"don't see"

"don't hear" (or "don't sense")

and behind

"Japan mystery"


Words on bottom I can’t read with confidence. It's probably name and place of manufacturer The name is similar "Banyu L. Rals" (?) "from Oreshak"


"Oreshak" or "Oreshek" in slavonic "small nut" - is the name of many historical town-fortresses. Bulgarian Wikipedia knows 2 Oreshaks:

* in centerОрешак_(Област_Ловеч)

* in eastОрешак_(Област_Варна)


I doubt whether second Oreshak is right - it's turkey-languaged village.


Total: if statuette is original, it's Bulgarian figurine, probably from Oreshak made before 1945 (but not from 1921 till 1923)
