My father brought this little fisherman sculpture back from Japan around 1959, and it may have been second-hand at that time. It’s not unlike the Hakata Urasaki clay figures, or it could be that pearly oyster shell Gofun material. I don’t know! His hat looks like papier maché, anyway, the outside layer finished with some kind of leafy material. He has a pole, and a fish. Unfortunately he’s missing his right toes, though. My parents loved this guy, and I hope it goes to someone who feels the same.

The base measures about 3” square, and he’s about 8” high.

I'd like a simple in-person cash transaction please, so take a careful look at the photos, and see what you think. Thanks!
