Product Description

This is an authentic Kutani Shishi figurine from the mid 1900's. Shishi is  translated as "lion” but it can also refer to a deer or dog with magical properties and the power to repel evil spirits.  It is from Kutani which a famous kiln region in the village of Kutani, now part of the city of Kaga.

This porcelain style is known for multiple colors—such as greens, blues, yellows, purples, and reds—and bold designs covering most of the surface; however, unlike traditional Kutani ware this piece is mostly green and purple which makes it truly special and unique. It has a stamp, Kutani on the bottom.
