An Ichimatsu doll - Japan.
Japan t. Very special, beautiful Japanese Ichimatsu doll with glass eyes, face made of plaster. Handmade silk kimono. Height - 46 cm, in very good condition
Ichimatsu dolls appeared in Kyoto, in the middle of the Edo period, and represent the famous Kabuki-actor Sanogawa Ichimatsum, who specialised in young male parts. So the doll represents a young man with black hair and a traditional hairstyle, with glass eyes and dressed in a kimono made of silk. The Ichimatsu doll models changed over time and also included girls (all "Dolls of Gratitude" were girls).
They became so popular that they were quickly included in Japanese folklore myths, so it is said that some Ichimatsu dolls can come to love, fall in love with the maker and that their hair can grow.
