Japan, a wonderful okimono combination from the Edo period! Two sculptures: a finely carved wood Sumo wrestler paired with and sitting perfectly on a pottery rendition of a cunning and devious feline cat! Does this signifiy the triumph of good over evil ? Height of both is 8"; length of both is 8", and depth is 4.5". Fine condition. This is enchanting mingei and comes from a very old Aichi Prefecture collection that was carefully assembled over the last decades. Lovely dark patina. Display them in your favorite room. This is a rare find offered for the first time in several decades.
