This is a fascinating vintage turned wood and painted nesting figure. The piece is complete with seven figures of varying sizes from ½ to 5 inches in height. Unlike most of these, I believe this to be of Japanese origin, and, although I have seen other before, they were not complete. Each of the figures has a different expression on the face, depicting ... sleep, anger, happiness etc. At least it appears that way to me. Each of the figures is hand painted with different colors, and the piece is very well made.
Condition: Very nice. Bit of paint wear to the main outer figure.
Size: Height of the figures- ½ to 5 inches.
