Striking large Japanese..Asian..Geisha Hagoita paddle with 3/4" wood back. The Hagoita Geisha Paddle shows a beautiful Geisha with a silk hand apinted face and silk fine yarn head of black hair. In her hair she is wearing the traditional multi-flower hair ornament, the gold metallic cloque with brocade trim in center and to the other side a lovely hand painted paper fan edged in checked brocade. She shows the under the chin tie with tassell under her chin. Her clothing is made of a interesting collage of silk brocade. Please notice the hand painted collage background. The wood back has also been hand- painted. She had been purchased in Tokoyo, Japan 45 years ago. She is larger than the popular 20" size. She measures 30" long and 13" wide.
She is in excellent vintage condition. When I was taking her home a small piece of her hand came un-glued. I will leave it to the new owner to glue it. Postage will be determined after she is ordered.
