Here we have for sale is a hand-me-down from my step-grandad. Today I only just found out that it was made pre-WW2! So late 1930's! The reason for this sale is basically I am terrified I will damage it (more so as I keep moving home!) and I have no use for it, I would prefer it to go to someone who will love it, look after it and have a better use for it themselves. Please cherish this item!
The doll is in good condition, Gofun face and cloth body (Oyster Shell) Doll with Wigs and traditional Japanese Kimono.some of her hair is missing but no worries she has wigs, six of them! They are made of real human hair and are not damaged except for one that has a small dollop of glue or something white upon it, if you wish to see before buying please contact me and I will send you a photo. The decorations upon the hair is still in very good condition.
Comes with original stand in the original box. On one side of the box there is a list explain the types of wigs, the style names and who would wear them, this is an educational piece as well and makes it very interesting. Her feet and hands look as if they were made from real oyster shells.
Inside the box there was a small crack but I have managed to fix this. On the lid of the box one side is broken, it is still attached to the lid so there is no pieces missing it's just loose, I tried to fix it but failed. You maybe able to fix it if you wish with hot glue or something. This crack was due to age and not man-made, well it is rather old!
She is rather delicate so please handle with care. She measures at 7 inches without her wigs. The box is 6"x8".
The dolls are becoming more expensive as they become scarce and shipping increases. A sensational gift, a terrific reminder of Japanese imports from the 1950's.
I have checked the value of this item and it ranges from £62 ($99.00) to £89 ($140.00) depending on quality and condition. I am selling this doll for £45. So grab a bargain which could be worth a hell of a lot more in the upcoming future.
Please contact me if you have any questions.

On the rare event of the postage costs being a few pounds more then listed, I will contact you before posting to come to some arrangement about the extra costs.
