Japanese Vintage Handmade Porcelain Geisha Doll. Measures 15 39cm tall. Possibly Made in Japan? Wooden case is 42cm x 19cm. Black Laquered base to the doll is 6 3/4 x 8 1/4 inches 17.2 cm x 21cm. The detail in the doll face, hair and attire is very pretty and fine. All silk kimono and her face and body underneath the clothing is porcelain. The original tie that holds her in the case are still in place – its doesnt look like she has ever been removed from the case. To access the doll a wooden bar slides and then you have to remove the glass. I notice a little mark on her nose and a few scuff type marks on the black base. The glass in the case seems rather roughly cut at its edges and is a little sharp -it doesnt seem to like staying in the grooves of the wooden case / box so glass tends to fall downwards on the doll – its possible that this happening has caused the scuff marks on dolls nose and base.
