The animal kingdom, a subject matter focused on by Japanese craftsmen throughout its history. The artist of this stylized rabbit has deployed his full creative potential and incorporated all the characteristics of an Art Deco inspired Okimono.

His eyes, nose and ears are accented with red while the body is white lacquer.

Vintage Condition: Very good commensurate with age with some wearing of the red accent on its inner ears. “As is”, and retains the original craft/workmanship. Any discoloration, chipping/cracking, surface wear or structural damage is noted.
