Miyamoto Shoko Hand-Carved Figural of a Woman with a Golf Club

About

Stunning giltwood hand-carved figural of a nude woman reaching out to birds holding a golf club. Truly one of the most spectacular pieces of golf art in silver and gold gilt. Period mahogany frame with green silk matte, artist signature and Miyamoto Shoko Logo and silk cord on verso. Founded in 1880 and known as a silver shop, The Miyamoto Shoko store is one of the representative establishments of the Japanese Empire. It is a marvelous exhibit continually of curios, silks and articles of virtu, carvings and a multitude of other things. The Miyamoto Shoko is purveyor to His Imperial Majesty's household by permit. From 1957-1961, golf was red hot, as the top executives and managers of Japan’s burgeoning New Middle Class — arguably the new elite in a post-aristocratic Japan — flocked to the greens. With this huge demand to hit the links, an unprecedented number of new courses were constructed.
