TT Hand Paint Made in Japan Takito Satsuma Style Moriage Geisha Figurines

 TT Hand Paint Made in Japan Takito Satsuma Style Moriage Geisha FigurinesLast week I won an auction bid on a mixed lot lot of 14 pieces, among them were this pair of Satsuma style moriage geisha figurines, made by Takito.

They're marked with the TT double diamond logo & Hand Paint, Made in Japan and are circa somewhere between 1921 - 1941. ( Taisho period to Early Showa period.)

Takito was in business from 1880 to 1948.   Products prior to 1921 were marked Nippon.  There were no exports out of Japan from December, 1941 to 1945 due to sanctions during WWII.   From 1945 to 1948 Takito company products were marked "Made in Occupied Japan"
