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.
