The age of such a stone item is difficult to determine. We think that this one is carved during the Taisho pwriod, 1912-1926, so around 100 years old. It has attractive ‘soft’ contours indicating weather corrosion for many years, a great sign of its older age. It is in a very good original condition. Please look at the photos for a condition reference.

When shipped we will add a certificate of authenticity.
