THE NAME WAS "FLAVIO"..AND, HE HAD PASSED AWAY.SUPPOSEDLY, HE WAS THE NUMBER ONE CARVER AND PAINTER OF "ANRI" FIGURINES. (THERE IS EVEN WHAT SEEMS TO BE THE ARTIST'S SPECIAL "DESIGN NUMBER, WHICH IS 87", TO THE RIGHT OFHISCIRCLED PRINTED "SIGNATURE". WHILE NOT COMPLETELY CLEAR, ON THE FIGURINE..THIS IDENTIFYING "FLAVIO" NAME AND NUMBER 87..IS PERFECTLY CLEAR ON THE MATCHING "MINNIE" FIGURINE, WHICH IS ALSO UP FOR offerS SEPARATELY.)
