Japanese doll Ichimatsu ningyō boy with silk kimono, 19th century
Very old Ichimatsu ningyō doll in traditional Japanese dress, silk kimono dating from around 1890. This superb male doll is made from shell, and the eyes are in paperweight glass. Ichimatsu dolls are inspired by an 18th century Kabuki actor, Sanogawa Ichimatsu. They would therefore represent a man rather than a boy, although female versions were created at the beginning of the 20th century.
The doll comes with a basic stand to hold her in a standing position, easily replaceable.
Silk garments are faded and worn due to age.
In its juice with traces of seniority and wear. The clothes are very fragile, the silk does not age well.
This is an authentic vintage toy that can complete an Asian Art collection.
