This is a beautiful original circa 1950's Japanese Geisha wig in its original box. The wig is made from black human hair and styled, it has a metal plate inside supposedly to keep the shape of the wig. The wig has an original wooden hair ornament. The vintage Millinery flowers are not original to the piece but have been added and look so pretty. The wig comes with its own wooden mannequin head to help keep the shape and this slides beautifully into the original carrying box. The mannequin head does have a silver coloured plaque with Japanese writing on it but sadly my language skills do not extend that far! There are a couple of loose hairs on the wig but otherwise it is in very good vintage condition and has a very delicate smell of perfume to it. A gorgeous piece for display or for those that collect all things Japanese. The box measures 11 inches width, 14 inches depth and 15 inches in height. The box does have age related wear to it as shown in the photographs. If you require further pictures please do contact me as I am limited as to how many I can post on the listing.
