It is almost a mythical version of a Shogun or Samurai . . . with flowing robes and other flairs.  I have done some research into the time period that this represents but have come up empty.


What I can say: it was secured from an avid warrior statue collector in LA USA quite a few years ago.  His hand-written provenance states that this statue is from Takaoka city.  It was cast in a small foundry that was known for highly detailed molds.  He also stated it was cast in the late 1800s.  I cannot substantiate that, so I have priced it lower.


It certainly appears to be museum quality and all other qualities speak to an accurate provenance.  The spear can be removed from the hand.


A stunning piece in perfect condition.  6.5” tall x 4” wide.


For the Serious Collector.
