I would love to offer images of various examples of these delightful works, but I do not dare risk any copyright infringement. However, you can come up with quite a number of images yourself by simply going to Google Images and entering in the title of this post. I doubt if the link from my own search will still work for you, but try it by clicking here. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!
One website that gave a pretty good overview of the history of Kutani Japanese porcelain, and also provided some images of samples of the Geisha variants, is Gotheborg.com.
