KI-052 Japanese Kimekomi Doll of a Child with twig and cage in his hand, 1950's

Charming antique Japanese Kimekomi doll of a little boy dressed in silk brocaded kimono, red obi belt and yellow sandals. He standing with twig and small cage (mushikago) in his hand. His face finished in gofun (crashed oyster shell) and hand-painted artistically, and black hair tied up in a bundle on a head top.
Kimekomi dolls have carved and/or molded base of wood, wood compo, or paulownia sawdust mixed with glue. A design of different patterned cloth made of silk brocade with traditional Japanese design scraps is planned out, and the base is grooved so that the edges of the cloth can be hidden in the grooves. The cloth is glued on and the edges tucked in. The head and hands of the doll are usually finished with gofun (crashed oyster shell), doll's face covered in a highly burnished gofun and hand-painted, the hair may be a part of the molded head or be a separate wig. These lovely dolls have become a very popular Japanese craft and collection.
