Pair of uncompleted geta clogs wooden boards

  • Pair of uncompleted geta clogs wooden boards

 

Exquisitely carved from a single piece of quality kiri paulownia wood with no joint, with very sensitive concave for the arch of the foot by skillful geta craftsman. A very refined work of art in very Japanese shape, remaining from old geta shop at geisha quarter as dead stock. Showa period. For adult male basically (shouldn’t be a perfect fit as the smaller size is the rule as the way (‘iki’).), but more like smoothened unisex shape with elegant texture as scarce sophisticated type. Without hanao straps as an unfinished wooden board, but personally prefer for its pure proportions as a object itself. approx. 21.8 x 9.5 cm (8.58 x 3.74in), H 4.3 cm (1.69in)
