This may have been considered a toy but is too fragile to be handled. It says on the original box that it is a Sanbaso which is a dance performed at Kabuki and Noh plays. This is a young man dancer. He is a nodder but does not have a rod through the neck as most ceramic Banko nodders do. It does not have holes for a rod so we guess the paper mache nodders may not always have the rod. (See photo of neck extended.) The head does not move as freely. He is 11" tall and has a few cracks in the paper mache. See photos - the largest crack is up from the bottom on the left side. This very unique folk art is probably mid-century or earlier.
