She is part of a two-piece set but is also very similar to an additional Enterprise wall plaque/figurine of a pink-tailed mermaid sitting on a fish with its head down and its tail up. These pieces are seldom seen and are hard to find. I have never seen a mermaid wall plaque/figurine where she is riding on a sea turtle. Although this listing is just for the one Florida mermaid wall plaque/figurine, the last two photos show the set of two and the group of three and how great they look together. The Florida mermaid on a sea turtle wall plaque's/figurine's textures are lush and the detailing is exquisite.Both the mermaid and the sea turtle have glossy finishes. She is riding on an iridescent off-white sea turtle with a blue rhinestone eye. The piece can stand up on its own or sit on a shelf; it can also be hung. Two hanging holes are on the back of the sea turtle's body. The item is stamped JAPAN on the back. For the sake of accuracy, here are a few minor condition mentions. The front bottom edge of the sea turtle has two tiny indentations. They are smooth and unglazed so they may have occurred at the factory.
There is a small indentation on the front bottom edge of the sea turtle's back leg. These three "flaws" can be seen slightly from the front.
On the back of the sea turtle, there are several line indentations. They do not show from the front.The edge of the large oval opening on the back of the turtle (which serves no purpose), has a few rough spots. Also, there is a bit of black ink under the F in FLORIDA; however, it is under the glaze so it is a factory blemish.
There are no chips, cracks, crazing, paint loss, scratches, or repairs. The Florida mermaid on a sea turtle wall plaque/figurine is in near mint condition. Its dimensions are 5-3/4" h x 4-3/4" w x 1-1/2 d. The Florida mermaid on a sea turtle wall plaque/figurine displays beautifully and is sure to make you smile.
It would be perfect for a bathroom, a child's bedroom, or a beach house. What a fitting gift for a housewarming, new baby, someone special, or just for yourself! Thanks so much for looking.
