This is a c. 1977 Gretchen Stoneware heart shaped trinket box. It was distributed by W.W.A. Inc. in Ohio and made in Japan. The saying on the top says "Friendship is full of happy surprises" And in the middle is an adorable little girl, presumably Gretchen.
Across the bottom at the widest point it measures approximately 3 1/4 inches. It is about 3 inches from top to the tip of the heart.
This is in very good vintage condition. There are no chips, cracks or crazing.
