Late Edo Period Musha Ningyo of Minamoto no Yoshitsune

Late Edo Period Musha Ningyo (Boys' Day Doll) depicting Minamoto no Yoshitsune seated for the Imperial Court. He is wearing a fantastic white brocade robe and a black lacquered court hat. This rare and wonderful, high-quality example has a great presence, sumptuous brocades, gold lacquered armor, and many other fine details. His face is gorgeously and masterfully carved with finely burnished gofun (white oyster shell lacquer). An extraordinary example. 14 x 14 inches, 35.5 x 35.5 cm.
