This an absolute stunning piece of Hakata art work from the 50s. This Japanese artist is beautifully caught in mid action. Hakata dolls have become one of the popular collector’s items in Japan. It comes with the original mat/base. At the end of the 19th century, Hakata dolls transformed from simple biscuit-fired toys to works of art. The Hakata doll gained fame when American soldiers took them back to the US as souvenirs during the American occupation of Japan following the Second World War. Japan started exporting Hakata dolls soon afterwards. Hakata Urasaki dolls are a little different. They were made during the Korean War in Japan and are harder to find than the regular Hakata dolls. In amazingly good condition despite being very fragile and breakable. Wear consistent with age. Size: 13″ T x 9″ L.
