What we can tell you that there is so many layers of gesso and genuine wear that simply cannot be made without the aid of generations of time. We wouldn't be surprised if this figure is 18th century or earlier. It is inscribed on the side with a Japanese seal pattern.

Also listed this week are several Ukiyo-E Woodblock prints! Be sure to check out all our other items listed!
