Silver comb - mark - China, Japan?

What do you think about this comb? Is this a modern item? Looks to be silver-plated. Does anyone recognize the mark?

I have seen the same comb in an auction catalog and it says "Silver comb Chinese export ware, Taisho Period the frame work modelled as a sleeping Geisha". But it does not seem to be right... a geisha and China??
