More about this item

These Japanese Ichimatsu baby dolls have been in the family for over 60 years. I was a toddler when my Mom gave them to me but would not let me play with them. She displayed them in a cabinet and when I moved out and got my own place they came with me and have been displayed in my own curio cabinet. I don't know much about them and couldn't find any tags or dates on them but after researching them online I found that they were Japanese Ichimatsu Gofun dolls. The story behind these as told by my Mom and Dad was that when My Dad was in World War II they had raided a Japanese barracks and my Dad found these little dolls in a safe and took them. So they are fairly old, I would describe them as vintage. They each measure about 8" and are in good condition though you can see some age on the clothing, I urge you to view each photo. They are jointed and their heads actually turn. I don't know what they are made of but after research I found that some are made of eggshells that have been broken and made into a mold. The kimonos are very intricate in design. They really are adorable and if you love dolls or know someone who does, these would make a great gift. These dolls are being sold as a set. Thank you.
