This Sotaro Saegusa okimono is made of cast iron and is 4" high x 4" long x 2" wide, weighs 2.4 lbs and is marked by the artist. This is the last of my December purchases which has been in the Mail Twilight Zone. I found this on an on line auction site from a seller who had a lot of Japanese pieces which they apparently knew a good deal about and this Akita that they knew nothing about. I got a good deal on it as a result, even bid them down a bit. I already have an Akita okimono by Saegusa but really liked the coloring on this one. The other one came with an original box and other materials, so I am going to put that one away and display this one that came on its own. I really like Saegusa's work and this one is a bit smaller, so also easier to find a place for.
