Lot No. 1124

Manufacturer: Rookwood

Artist: Grace Young


Description: Rare Standard glaze full length portrait of pretty Geisha done by Grace Young in 1900. The comely lass stands serenely holding a fan in her right hand. Marks include the Rookwood logo, the date, shape number 907 D and the incised monogram of Miss Young. Height 10 1/4 inches. Very faint crazing and otherwise, excellent original condition. Generally considered the best portrait painter at Rookwood, Grace Young has given us many Native Americans and at least one Maori woman along with a Geisha or two. Very nice.

Estimate: $5,000.00 - $7,000.00
