Geisha with a drum


Item code : EDC058

Size 25 x 9.5 cm
Date Meiji (1868 - 1912)


Porcelain figurine of a geisha with a drum, wearing a purple kimono with plum blossoms pattern. That type of a drum was one of the basic instruments every geisha was taught to play. Its beat would accompany dancing performances.


Good. Restoration of the detached head and hand, chip on the foot, and a small loss of paint on the head.
