Antique Meiji Japanese Hagoita AKA Badminton Paddle
Please refer to our stock # J173 when inquiring.
This Hagoita depicts the princess in the Kabuke play Musume Dojo-Ji. This paddle is a wonderful example of the folk art of Japanese folded fabric into deeply sculptured relief. Though rarely used now, the paddles today are valued as an ornament that is believed to bring good luck.
Unfortunately, though in otherwise excellant condition this Meiji period princess has lost some of the foil pedals from her headdress.
