Small Ceramic Mask / Okame / Japanese / Dated 1973:
This small Japanese ceramic mask is dated November 28, Showa 48 (1973), on its back, and depicts Okame, a figure from folklore. The maker's mark at the top on the back appears to say "Homutanomiya". There is also some writing beneath the date, but it's mostly illegible.This mask is in basically good condition. There is general wear and dustiness, with some noticeable smudges, but there is no significant structural damage.
About W3 11/16" (94mm) X H5 3/16" (131mm) X D1 11/16" (42mm).

General Note about Shipping:
Unless otherwise indicated, we ship all of our items via Standard Air Mail. Nonetheless, we are always happy to change shipping methods if faster (and thus more expensive) or cheaper (and thus slower) shipping is desired. The shipping options available are (from fastest and most expensive to slowest and least expensive): EMS, Air Mail, SAL (economy airmail), Surface.
Registered mail with tracking is also available for an additional US$4.50 above the standard Air Mail shipping cost stated in the description.
We are glad to combine multiple items for shipping, and of course will discount some of the postage charges for each item after the first one. Please note that the shipping discount is not large for heavy items, but for small, light things we will discount the shipping charges by 40-100 percent, depending on how heavy it is and how it needs to be packed.
We ship at least once and very often twice a week, and so most of the time items will be in the mail within no more than 10 business days after we have received payment. We also always send a brief note informing buyers when their items have shipped.
