This is an absolute stunning piece of Hakata art work from the 50s. This Japanese fisherman or cook is beautifully caught in mid action. I love the fish tray that comes with it. Hakata dolls have become one of the popular collector’s items in Japan. 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 amazing vintage condition although these pieces are very fragile and breakable. One small chip on the fish tray (see photo). Size: fisherman: 7 1/2″ T x 5 1/2″ L fish tray: 4 L.
