Hello

Does anyone know about this bird? There seems to be a mark around the underside edge.

Any help would be appreciated.

It's a quail, manufactured by the Otagiri Mercantile Company (OMC), Japan.

The Otagiri Company was in business from 1954-1994. It was bought out by Enesco in 1994. Registered in NYC and San Francisco.
Recognized by its gold diamond shaped sticker with the letters OMC.
Otagiri imported wares from many Japanese kilns and companies. Most were marked with an OMC sticker, however some were produced especially for Otagiri and have an incised mark or a transfer mark with Otagiri. These appear to have been made around the mid 1970's to mid 1980's.
