This 15 ½ inch tall doll, circa the late 19th century, was manufactured in Japan. It has a papier mache/gofun head with a swivel neck, shoulder plate, lower torso, and lower arms and legs with bare feet. The doll’s papier mache torso is anatomically correct with a very tiny appendage. The midsection is cloth and paper. The sweet boy has a closed mouth with glass set eyes and painted hair. He also has pierced nostrils and prominent ears. The kimono, of various cotton print fabrics with some wear, appears to be original to the doll but I am not positive. It seems to be of the same period if not original. I love the expressiveness of this little guy’s face. He has no repaint, only minor cracking under each ear, and is in good sturdy condition. I couldn’t resist his happy presence.
