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

    Essendo arrivato uno dei due acquisti (Samurai) rotto in 3 parti. Ho dovuto pagare l'intero prezzo, nonostante fosse stato quantificato in € 50,00. In quanto Catawiki ha pagato l'intero p

    Popje beschadigd tijdens transport (zegt U) we zijn overeengekomen dat ik u 50 euro vergoed om te laten repareren vervolgens of ik dan 150 euro wil betalen omdat ik anders een negatieve feedback krijg? ik laat me niet chanteren, dan ook niet op mijn mail reageren dat zegt meer over u !!
    daarnaast heeft u 3 items gekocht bij diverse kopers allemaal negatief u feedback kan toch niet kloppen
