Amazing Retro Twiggy Style Head Bust Money Bank!

Here is a rare vintage ceramic head bust money bank from Japan! I won this via Yahoo Japan, and it arrived, this morning!

 She reminds me of Twiggy! She is made of ceramic and has metal earrings. No markings, darn. Her short hairstyle reminds me of the 1960s mod style, with big eyes and a cute button nose.
 A closer look and side view. Along with a back view. At the top of her head is the slot for coins. Underneath she has a black plug you can remove to get the coins out.

 I've seen this head once before, I believe? But, probably in a Yahoo seller's auction, but somewhere in the background...
She's quite large, about 10in. or 25cm. A slight chip at the base.

 Comparison photos to my other twiggy head bank...

I also wanted to show some outdoor shots using the macro lens, I got the other day...
