Customer Question
I have vintage 10in...

I have vintage 10in tall i very statue ibeleve it is a gesha girl with artit mark on camono at back

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

The base looks to be soap stone black the arts mark best can tell z with 2 lines top and bottom and a #1 below that

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Hair rap or hair made up to look like a bird
