we have a fantastic early bisque piece circa late 1800's-early 1900's. With a wonderful face, detailed molded hair and modelled in the geisha girl style holding a 3-stringed instrument known as the "Shamisen". The figure has a mold number# 5343 incised on her bow located on the back of the figure. Measuring approx. 5-1/4" high with a base width of 3-1/4".

On a level surface, her head rocks back & forth due to a bisque weight situated under the figure which is attached to her neck. It is supported with a metal pin that is inserted through the neck and rests on (2) grooves located on the shoulders. As shown, t is some loss to the gilt (gold) in areas which can be touched up if one prefers. Overall, it is in great condition having no cracks, chips, or repairs.

Thanks for visiting! My intentions are to list weekly, so please be sure to check back.
