KI-054 Japanese kimekomi doll of a Long Hair Beauty, 1950's

Finely modeled Japanese vintage doll in kimekomi technique represents young princess with long black hair dressed in rich 12 layered kimono 'juni hitoe' and red hakama.  She sits on knee and holds wooden fan with silk ropes.
The doll made around 1950's by famous Japanese artist. Princess's face is finished in gofun (crashed oyster shell) and hand-painted tenderly.
Japanese kimekomi dolls have carved base of wood, or paulownia sawdust mixed with glue. A design of different patterned cloth made of silk brocade with traditional Japanese design scraps is planned out, and the base is grooved so that the edges of the cloth can be hidden in the grooves. The cloth is glued on and the edges tucked in. The head and hands of the doll are usually finished with gofun (crashed oyster shell) and hand-painted, the hair may be a part of the molded head or be a separate wig. These lovely Japanese traditional kimekomi dolls have become a very popular for collection.
