This is one of two Japanese dolls that came to me from a Savannah Estate. And while I have no expertise in this area, I know that the larger 17" doll in the dark kimino ius an outstanding example. Her face hands and feet appear to be covered in silk. I'm guessing the kimino is a rayon. Exceptionally nice details on the hands and feet (that's hard to do). The black lacquered base is dated 1965. With the exception of the date, everything else is written in Japanese characters so I have no clue what all of that means. Her hair might be real.
She's perfect. No flaws and she's clean and nice - presenting herself beautifully. I don't need to get rich with her - I'd just like to move her along to a collector who'll enjoy adding her to a collection. I think she's very finely done. I'll ship free on a buy it now and to anyone who buys both dolls. I'll be listing the smaller one separately.

A Little About Shipping

We like to ship quickly. And generally ship in USA by priority mail. We don't use shipping as a profit center. Usually we're happy not to take a beating. We do have to buy shipping supplies, so we factor in a few pennies to cover that.

International Buyers Are Welcome

Shippping overseas costs more (but you probably already know that). Bidders from outside the U.S. are welcome to participate.

I ask only that you email me before you bid and agree to pay electronically .

In addition, please consider shipping charges ahead of time, particularly on winter woolens . Usually I will look for the most efficient , inexpensive, and quickest way to get the item to you. But, we only use International Air Mail from the US Postal Service. I do not set postal rates and I will not negotiate them.

We recently acquired some very lightweight plastic mailing envelopes which will help keep shipping costs down.
