Japanese theater doll puppet
A really quite exceptional Japanese doll/puppet which I assume to be late 19th century. The head is carved wood, painted with inset glass eyes. The rest of the body appears to be wood as well. There is a hole on top of the head which I assume was connect to the mouth. The mouth opens and closes.The cloth and embroided costume are original and the hair seems like human hair. The doll is 26" tall. It was bought in Amsterdam and I know of no history aside from this. I have always felt that it had a very benign presence and I am sure that whatever home in which it ends up will have the best ofluck. Buyer pays $18 for priority shipping. Will ship internationally, minimum of $40 or postage to be determined. Accepting PayPal. If you would like to receive my e-letters, please let me know. You may see other items at americanjazz.com.
