THIS BELONG TO MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER AND THEN MY GRANDMOTHER INHERITED IT. WHEN SHE PASSED MY MOTHER INHERITED IT. MY MOTHER IS NOW 84 YEARS OLD. MY MOTHER GAVE HER TO ME AND I PLAYED WITH HER WHEN I WAS A CHILD.
SHE IS A VERY EXPRESSIVE DOLL WITH A GENTLE & CALMING FACE! HER BODY, FACE, HANDS & FEET APPEAR TO BE MADE OF (GOFUN) A MIXTURE OF RICE PASTE & CRUSHED OSYTER SHELLS AND APPEARS HAND FORMED.SOME OFF HER HAIR ON HER HEAD HAS FALLEN OFF AND SOME IS LOOSE. HER CLOTHES ARE HAND SEWN AND IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. THEY ARE NOT MEANT TO BE REMOVABLE AND I HAVE NEVER TAKEN THEM OFF. 4 OF THE WIGS ARE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION AND 1 WIG IS IN GOOD CONDITION WITH HAIR WORN OFF.
THE WIGS ARE VERY BEAUTIFUL AND DETAILED. WE HAVE ESTIMATED HER AGE TO BE AROUND 100 YEARS OLD FOR THE TIME SHE HAS BEEN IN OUR FAMILY.DOLL: 4-1/2"×2" 5-WIGS: 1-1/2×1-1/2- SIZE VARIES BECAUSE EACH WIG IS DIFFERENT AND SIZE IN HEIGHT OF WIGS IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT. THERE ARE JAPANESE DOLLS SIMILAR WITH WIGS BUT NOT OF THIS AGE.
