This is a top quality Japanese blue and white HIRADO Okimono of a seated shi-shi with a ball. It is almost identical to the one shown on a cover of L.Lawrence book ' Hirado'; it may be even more interesting because it has a ball. This Okimono is free from any damages. It measures 7 3/4 inches long by 5 1/4 inches tall and 4.2 inches deep. It dates 19the century, Meiji, Japan.
