  • Pair of uncompleted geta clogs wooden boards with high teeth

 

Quality geta clogs wooden boards attached with thin but solid oak high stand (‘ha’ lit. teeth), called ‘sashiba-geta’ (false-tooth geta), also called ‘itamae-geta’ (chef geta) for their traditional use. A very refined work of art in very Japanised architectural shape by skillful geta craftsman, remaining from old geta shop at geisha quarter as dead stock. Showa period. Without hanao straps as an unfinished wooden board, but personally prefer for its aesthetic proportions as a object itself. approx. 21 x 10 cm (8.26 x 3.93in), H 10.3 cm (4.05in)
