THIS IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL OLD VINTAGE CHINESE OR JAPANESES DOCTORS DOLL. THE TRADITIONAL DOCTORS DOLLS WERE USED AS A DIAGNOSTIC TOOL. THIS BEAUTIFUL LITTLE WOMAN IS DISPLAYED ON CARVED WOODEN STAND, IT WAS THE CUSTOM IN CHINA AND JAPAN FOR LADIES TO DESCRIBE THEIR ILLS BY POINTING ON THE DOLL TO AN AREA THAT WAS THE PROBLEM. THIS WAS LESS EMBARRASSING THAN POINTING TO ONES OWN ANATOMY. THIS DOLL HAS BEEN CARVED BY VERY TALENTED ARTIST. THE FACIAL AND HAIR FEATURES ARE EXQUISITE. HEAD IS RECLINING ON PILLOW AND DOLL HAS BOUND FEET. I BELIVE DOLL WAS CARVED IN THE VERY LATE 19TH OR VERY EARLY 20TH CENTURY.
