"Kiku | Chrysanthemum"


Dimensions: 14-1/4” h

Once used as the Imperial Seal of Japan, the Chrysanthemum flower was referred to as ‘Kikumon’. These beautifully stylized and painted flower painted in red and orange incorporating variegated green leases are exceptional, and combined with the beautifully executed Chatter Work on the base, create a wonderful contrast in texture. Her face is quite simple with bangs and hairbows, with very expressive red lips. The piece is signed by the artist.

Vintage Condition: “As is” with some scattered light wear or stain that does not affect the design, and retains the original craft/workmanship. Any discoloration, chipping/cracking, surface wear or structural damage noted.
