Beautiful Japanese Daki Ningyo standing at the unusual height of 27 inches (68.5cm), making him a very rare and striking figure. It is most uncommon to see this type of Ningy├┤ outside of Japan, for they are highly prized by the Japanese. A widely held theory has it that these dolls were commissioned by patrons of Geisha as presentation gifts. This one is outstanding in every way. It has a wonderfully expressive face.
