Regular price $725.00 Sale

 Tonight we are putting up for sale another item from my Grandfathers estate. and what we have here is a very old piece of Japanese advertising signage that features a Japanese Geisha breast feeding her baby......
       It's all HAND CARVED and HAND PAINTED and done on a very heavy hardwood.....From the research I've done the very heavy hardwood that was used is called KEYAKI WOOD and is....( much valued by Japanese wood workers for it's hardness and beautiful grain ) ....and the signage itself measures a full 36 1/2" Long X 16" Wide X 2" thick......
       I believe this much sought after piece to be from the MEIJI  PERIOD which would date it from 1868 to 1912 and I think this was from a Japanese pharmacy advertising a product that was supposedly as good as mothers milk......
     What a great addition to any Japanese Collection, and as this piece weighs close to 50 lbs, there will be NO SHIPPING on this piece and must be picked up at my home in Hemet, Calif....
