This delicate and detailed ceramic Geisha, against a profusion of flowers, is playing what may be a representational form of an early Japanese Tonkori. The Tonkori is a plucked instrument played by the Ainu people of Hokkaido, northern Japan, and Sakhalin.

By 1970, the Tonkori was nearly extinct.  

The Statuette stands approximately 17 1/2" tall, and is 12" wide.

A beautiful and highly prized piece of art.
