This is a lovely vintage plastic pencil case for girls.
Made in the sixties and beautifully illustrated by Yukiko Tani. She was one of the manga artists to have emerged from the late 50s and 60s to create the unique "shoujo" manga style as seen in other works by artists such as Macoto/Makoto. Her work has influenced many manga artists in Japan. This pencil case was made during the peak of her time and is very rare.
It is a dead stock item and is unused. The condition of the illustrated part, which is made of cardboard, shows signs of wear. It may have been left in a shop display. Also, the original purple color should be darker so the color of this pencil case has slightly faded (Please see the inset photo).
Pencil Case Length: approximately 22 cm or 8.66 inches
Made in Japan by Sun-Star.
