  • Lindy-Nakamura Japanese Pillow Doll

    There is only 1 item left in stock.

    This unusual Japanese pillow doll by Lindy-Nakamura is of a seated Japanese man with a solemn hand-painted face, a face reminiscent of those in antique Japanese wood block prints.  He wears a tall dark green hat with burgundy trim over his black hair and a silky off-white kimono, which is printed with flying cranes in red, green, blue, purple, white, and gold and abstract branches in green and gold.  He has a folded double sash in burnt orange, green and magenta with an attached green, gold and white fan with a gold tassel.  He holds a gold paper origami crane in his left hand.  The body of the doll feels weighted and pillow-like so that he sits comfortably on a couch, chair or bed.  The original tag is still attached and reads: Samurai, Box 793, La Jolla, CA  92038/ 1982 Lindy-Nakamura.  No information could be found on this company nor on the maker.  In very good condition.
