    This item consists of three unused 1940s Japanese Geisha Place Cards in different color palettes (red, green and lavender).  Each geisha, measuring 6" high (at the tip of the umbrella) by 2.125" wide (at the base), has a kimono with black squiggle line and applied white dot design; a wide deep colored, unembellished obi; two round, dotted hair ornaments; an abstract floral fan; an umbrella that opens, and a paper swing-out stand on back.  Her long oval face has simple features, including a bowed red mouth, and her black hair is in a traditional hairstyle with rounded top and widow's peak.  Each is stamped "Made in Japan" on the back.  These 1940s Japanese Geisha Place Cards are in Very Good condition with no damage or wear.  The umbrellas have never been opened.  The paper has yellowed over time, giving them a patina of age.
