Judy, a good choice.
Beautiful hair, especially on the back. I like the crouched over, completely drunken state with the shifted face.
A Shojo in optimum condition.

What an absolutely and speechlessly gorgeous example of this subject!!!!

I love that Shojo through and through! It is beyond yummy! I wish I could hold her in my hand, but showing us all sides of her like that is a real treat! Thanks so much... Yep I would choose her over and over again!

This Shojo is a true masterpiece in every way. I have been actively seeking a beautiful Shojo for my collection and this has made the job so much harder. How to achieve close to this little gem when daylight is second and the rest are way back in the pack.

A Shojo in the same semi-recumbent position as the piece previously shown.
Signed Masatoshi, mid-19th century, also Nagoya school.
Tadatoshi's Shojos give me the impression that it is always the same Shojo, only in a different position.
This is certainly another person and in a different spheroidal design.
I love them especially. Maybe it reminds me unconsciously to a particular person or is it a infantile focus.
Also an Edo piece with minimal wear.
