Japanese Meiji period folk art ovoid form wood mold in the form of Daruma used for making paper mache dolls. Carved from one large piece of wood. The large wedge in the back was likely used by the artisan to remove the dried paper mache form during the production process. 7” high. Late 19th to early 20th century. The original price tag of $375 remains on the bottom. From the estate of a Daruma collector in Phoenix, Arizona.
