Wood, finely crafted to mimic the original with moko form guard. 39 3/4” overall. Almost certainly made for theatrical use, and therefore, almost certainly for use in Madame Butterfly which premiered in 1904. Fine lacquer finish, now with storage chips, which would glisten in the stage lights. At the time, there were many thousands of live performance theaters with millions of props, nearly all of which are now perished.
