Cute Japanese Ichimatsu Doll Festival Holding Tamari Ball

Made in Japan

good for its age

This is a Japanese ichimatsu ningyo doll, she's kawaii holding a tamari ball. This is great to give as a gift to your daughter or even friends who love dolls. Itchimatsu dolls represent either a boy or a girl usually with glass eyes and flesh-colored skin, originally made of gofun, a smooth, porcelain like substance made from ground oyster shell. but in 1927 a Friendship Doll exchange involved the creation of fifty eight 32 inch tall dolls, representing little girls, to be sent as a gift from Japan to the United States, and the aesthetic of these fifty eight dolls influenced dollmakers to emulate this type of a solemn, gentle-looking little girl in elaborate kimono, so, since then, many ichimatsu were made to look more like those Friendship Dolls.
