You are buying a stunning Kabuki doll. 16" tall. A little dot on nose. Some wear on feet from age. Kagamijishi or Kaga Mijishi. Yayoi the court lady is dancing at New Year celebrations when a lion head mask lying nearby begins to distract her. Completely captivated, Yayoi moves to pick up the lion mask. Once in her hand this lion mask takes possession of her soul and her dance suddenly becomes erratic. The spirit of the mask overpowers her and drags her off-stage. Moments later, Yayoi rushes back down stage, now fully transformed as a huge lion. Two butterflies irritate the lion into a frenzy; he dances, swirling his great mane in wild circles, evoking the fearsome rage of a lion.

How cool is that?

I used to sell on eBay and I have a 100% positive rating there as kathyo! Please keep checking my inventory as I have about 30 apple boxes filled with antiques and vintage collectibles. Also, I will be posting furniture.
