A good Japanese Satsuma porcelain figure by Kinkozan, Meiji period, modelled as a young Japanese woman in standing pose, her head tilted down and to the left towards her raised right hand, her left arm hangs by her side, a pink flower kanzashi in her black hair, wearing a grey kimono beautifully painted with large chrysanthemums and golden dragonflies, yellow ground haneri visible beneath, her red ground obi with large bat symbols over a gilt leaf pattern, held in place by a pink and white spotted obijime, white tabi and zori with orange straps, on an integral rectangular base with canted corners and naturalistic tree stump, gilt geometric pattern to it's sides, impressed seal mark 'Kinkozan zo' to base, 10 by 11 by 45.5cm high.
In good condition with only minor problems, hairline cracks and crackleure to glaze including one along her right hand and arm. There is a small missing piece broken off from the draped end of her pink obijime - only visible frrm the back. There also appears to be a missing part that looks to have been stuck to the base below the lower hem of her kimono, there is a circular rough patch on the ground and missing glaze on the hem above it. In need of cleaning and with normal light scratches overall from use.
