Good condition, please see description

A beautiful old Japanese Musha Ningyo doll.
Depicts the famous Takenouchi no Sukune.
A beautiful Ningyo with very nice details.
As seen on the pictures, the doll is used and has some signs of wear.
It misses a small piece of the beard.
Height is approx. 30 cm and width is 27 cm.
The materials that are used are impressively delicate.

The art of puppet-making in Japan is centuries old and has been passed down from generation to generation. There are more than three hundred different versions that were made for trading purposes, even before the 16th century.
Besides that, puppets were made for religious or traditional purposes, which was just as important if not more important.

Musha Ningyo,
These are carefully crafted puppets that are considered to be family property, and so they are passed on to the next generation.
Let it be clear that it is extremely difficult for a collector to acquire a genuine puppet, let alone an antique, festival puppet. After all, they belong to the family heritage. One must go through a serious rough patch before they will want to sell these.
Good luck!

The set will be shipped and packaged with the utmost respect and care.
Good luck

    Helaas was de helm niet compleet. Ondanks dat verkoper in gebreke is gebleven, deze helaas niet kunnen overtuigen dat ik niet €25,- aan verzend- en veilingkosten zou moeten betalen!

    Uit coulance het gekochte helmpje terug genomen kosten veiling 65 euro nadat ik het retour kreeg compleet verwoest heb ik toch netjes aan meneer 75 euro overgemaakt als snel kreeg ik mail dat dit onvoldoende toereikend is of ik dan nog 20 euro wil overmaken of anders deze feedback ik had het zelfs nog gedaan maar niet op deze manier dit zegt meer over de koper dan de verkoper ik hoop in de toekomst dat de laatste beter worden beschermd tegen dit soort malavide praktijken .
    Als meneer goed zijn mail had gelezen had hij de 20 euro allang gehad en een bosje bloemen kunnen kopen
