Q: I bought a Lady figurine from “Lady and the Tramp” for 99 cents. It’s porcelain, about 4 inches tall and marked “Disney, Japan” with a copyright symbol. Did I pay too much?

A: “Lady and the Tramp,” Disney’s animated romance about a purebred cocker spaniel and a mutt, was released in 1955—the same year Disneyland opened in southern California. The opening of the theme park ignited even more demand for Disney figurines. At about this time, Disney started to have some figures made in Japan. Lady figurines like yours sell for about $10 online, so you paid a bargain price.
